Dear Colleagues, 

Nanotechnological advancements have spurred the development of assays and devices for medical diagnostics which are faster, cheaper, more sensitive, and more accurate. Biosensors utilizing nanomaterials bring various disciplines together, such as chemistry, molecular engineering, material science, and biotechnology. They offer extremely high sensitivity, such that some biosensors are now capable of detecting as low as one parasite per microlitre of blood. The recognition of disease biomarkers at extremely low abundance, with the help of nanotechnology, permits the screening of diseases at very early stages. This has the capacity to upgrade medical techniques required for follow-up procedures and routine prognosis to monitor patient diagnosis. Furthermore, blending nanotechnology with biosensing is vital for point-of-care diagnosis in countries which lack advanced medical facilities. Accurate and reliable real-time sensing and the detection of physiological information using nanomaterials technologies would have a broad impact on our daily lives.

Thus, we are interested in the collective political subjects in the healthcare sensing applications of nanomaterials, covering carbon allotrope-based, inorganic nanomaterials and organic nanomaterials. Including these sensing nanosystems to detect the clinically relevant molecules and entire cells in various sensing media, as well as for healthcare monitoring, et al.

For this, it is important to collect the experiences of different kinds nanomaterials that have been implemented and consider their impacts on healthcare biosensing. Research articles and reviews in this area of study are welcome.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
