About this Research Topic
The metallome is the distribution of inorganic species in a cell. Metallomics and metalloproteomics are emerging fields addressing the role, uptake, transport and storage of the trace metals essential for life. Moreover, one may consider fate of metal based nanomaterials as new emerging field of metallomics. Metal nanomaterials can be found in numerous fields including those targeting a tumour fulfilling personalized medicine concept. The patriarchal and universal “one-size-fits-all” medicine of past centuries has evolved into medicine optimized for not only a particular disease but also a particular patient. This personalized medicine has emerged in response to the modern state of drug development and numerous discoveries of novel diagnostic or therapeutic methods. One of the most suitable modalities that can be used for personalized medicine and theranostics, are thought to be nanocarriers. Since the discovery of all the advantages nanocarriers in general can provide for personalized treatment, there has been a widespread hunt to find the perfect nanocarrier with many researchers discussing the properties of such ideal nanocarrier. A promising way is the use of self-assembly proteins natively forming cages of uniform size and shape. In this Research Topic, we would welcome research articles as well as reviews covering above described NanoMetallomics and Oncogenesis.
