#478 - (22b) Nanotechnology for in Vivo and in Vitro Imaging (T8011)
The application of nanomaterials to the design of in vivo and in vitro imaging agents offers new possibilities for methods in diagnosis and therapy. Nanomaterials have properties such tunable electrochemical and optical character, high chemical or catalytic activity, large specific surface area, and small size. However, there are some issues in using these materials for in vivo and in vitro applications, including biocompatibility, toxicity, uptake, targeting. We seek papers pertaining to new configurations and compositions of nanomaterials that target these problems in vivo and in vitro applications.
