Tiny solutions for giant cardiac problems.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Health care nanotechnology research has "domesticated" molecular and cellular processes to serve our needs. This paper introduces current cardiovascular therapies for nanotechnologists unfamiliar with the field or current developments. Although early in its development, cell-based disease therapy capitalizes on existing biologic systems to implement nanoscale functionality. We propose that the most efficient development pathway for nanomedicine is to merge biomolecular and cellular techniques with the nanotechnology knowledge base.
