Multifunctional Nanomaterials for Biosensors and Therapeutics

About this Research Topic

Recently, enormous efforts are been devoted to application-oriented nanomaterials. The applications explored range from healthcare, energy, aerospace, agriculture, automotive and defense, etc. Among all these applications, the healthcare-based exploration of nanomaterials has made significant growth with applications in the development of antimicrobial materials, biosensors, bioimaging probes, drug delivery, toxicity, and therapeutics. In the biosensor regime, various sensors have been developed for disease diagnosis through biomarkers, aptamers, and VOCs. A variety of sensors have been developed for blood glucose, cholesterol, blood urea, uric acid, ascorbic acid, vitamins, and proteins as an indicator of the disease conditions. In therapeutics, nanotechnology play important role in terms of the intrinsic therapeutic potential of nanoparticles, drug encapsulation, targeted release, and increasing drug efficiency. A considerable amount of work has been done in tumor diagnosis and treatment using nanostructures. From a technological point of view, these materials are embedded in point of care devices (PoC) and in wearable electronics.

In this research topic, emerging trends in bio-medical nanotechnology, broadly nanomaterial-based biosensors, and application in therapeutics will be included. The section will have original research articles/ review articles/mini-reviews and perspectives on the following areas.



- Sensors for biomarker detection/biomolecules/pathogens

- Aptamer based diagnostic platforms

- Computational studies

- DNA/siRNA/gene delivery using nanomaterials

- Drug delivery

- Antimicrobial resistance

- Tissue engineering

- Nanotheranostics


Keywords: Biosensors, Therapeutics, Biomarkers, Nanomaterials, Photo-dynamic therapy, Theranostics, Bioimaging, Drug delivery, Nucleic acid delivery, Antimicrobial


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
