Nanotechnology: emerging tools for biology and medicine
Ian Y. Wong, Sangeeta N. Bhatia and Mehmet Toner

Nanotechnology encompasses structures comparable in size with biomolecules and enables new ways to measure and detect biology, perturb cells, and treat patients. Here, Wong et al. review nanotechnology-based approaches for precisely measuring and perturbing living systems that may yield unexpected insights into systems biology as well as new therapeutic strategies for personalized medicine.
