Presented will be an overview of recent scientific and engineering advances in nanomedicine and its current and potential applications. The interaction between nanoparticles and radiation holds great interest and promise in nanomedicine, introducing such possibilities as selective cell targeting by nanoparticles to create highly localized thermal cell damage. We will discuss the design and methods of activation of nanodrugs selectively delivered to the tumor site, with new dynamic modes in selective nanophotothermolysis of cancer.
