Has Nanomedicine Lived Up to Its Promise?

(Nanowerk) – In early 2003, the European Science Foundation launched its Scientific Forward Look on Nanomedicine, a foresight study and in 2004, the U.S. National Institute of Health (NIH) published its Roadmap (now Common Fund) of the Nanomedicine Initiative. This program began in 2005 with a national network of eight Nanomedicine Development Centers. Now, in the second half of this 10-year program, the four centers best positioned to effectively apply their findings to translational studies were selected to continue receiving support.
