Nanoparticles and their use in medicine might not be a thing of science fiction. In an article for The Conversation, Duxin Sun, a U-M professor and pharmaceutical scientist, explores the concept of nanomedicine, the use of materials at the nanoscale to diagnose and treat disease, and how it could be used to treat cancer. The faculty expert defines nanomedicine and shares examples of its current uses, including the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines. Sun also suggests ways to improve nanoparticle-based cancer drugs and shares insights on the promising future of nanomedicine.
