The fundamental goal of each project selected is to utilize some aspect of nanotechnology in order to improve clinical approaches to diagnostics, therapeutics, or tissue engineering. The advantages of utilizing nanotechnology for developing new clinical strategies are many fold, including miniaturization, disease-specific targeting, and enhanced therapeutic efficiency.
