A new journal in nano and life science by World Scientific

The tremendous success in developing new nanomaterial and fostering technological innovation arises from its focus on interdisciplinary research and collaboration between physical and medical scientists. The concept of nanobiomedicine is one of the most important ideas ever generated by the applications of nanoscience to medical fields. Although there have been extensive interdisciplinary activities, major collaborative efforts are still needed to jointly address some of the most challenging issues in life and medical sciences.

A new scientific journal: Nano LIFE has been recently established ( and published by World Scientific. Nano LIFE is a quarterly international journal publishing peer-reviewed research in all fields of nano and biomedical sciences. The emphasis of the journal is based on its originality, importance, and interdisciplinary nature between nano and life sciences. Nano LIFE also provides current news and interpretations of critical issues in nanomedicine that caters to scientific communities and the general public.

Nano LIFE will effectively facilitate interactions and collaborations between the nano and medical research communities that are more focused in solving key problems based on emerging nanoscience and technologies. This journal is also addressed to researchers in a broad spectrum of materials, chemical, biological and medical sciences, and engineering. In addition, it summarizes the wealth of experimental results in both nanomaterials and biomedicine and introduces new aspects of nanoscience relevant to biological and medical applications. It also demonstrates new trends in the field and cultivates a new research community in both frontier research and higher education.

The inaugural issue of Nano LIFE includes review articles authored by authorities in both nano and biomedical sciences, and original research results that will address the most critical challenges in nanoscience and biomedicine. Nano LIFE aims to publish top and frontier research results from the interdisciplinary nano and biomedicine communities covering the following topics:
