The ability of one structural type to perform multiple medical diagnostic or therapeutic functions is often cited as an advantageous characteristic of nanomaterials that cannot be achieved with organic small molecules. [1–3] Although there are now many examples of nanosystems that integrate multiple functions into a single structure, the designs can reduce(More)
Multifunctional nanomaterials have the potential to integrate the clinical paradigms of imaging and therapy to enable real-time visualization of therapeutic biodistributions in patients. For cancer therapy, nanomaterials with capacities to be remotely detected and triggered for therapy could also close the loop between tumor detection and treatment. In this(More)
