FASEB Releases Its Newest Publication in the Horizons in Bioscience Series

Bethesda, MD – The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) is pleased to announce the release of the latest publication in the Horizons in Bioscienceseries, "Nanomedicine: A Targeted Approach." The article describes the emerging field of nanoparticle targeting.

Nanomedicine is beginning to change the way scientists and physicians diagnose and treat disease. Unlike conventional therapies, these tiny particles – 1,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair – can seek out diseased tissue and access hard to reach places in the body. This article will provide readers with an understanding of what nanoparticles are, how they specifically target diseased tissue, and how they can diagnose and treat some of our most devastating diseases.


The Horizons in Bioscience series is a collection of short, illustrated articles published by FASEB that describe scientific discoveries on the brink of clinical application. Printed copies of the articles are available at no cost for educational or advocacy purposes and can be requested by visiting the Breakthroughs in Bioscience website at www.faseb.org/breakthroughs or by contacting FASEB's Office of Public Affairs at 301-634-7650.
