One of the main functions of nanoparticles is to deliver therapeutic agents to targeted diseased site. The therapeutic nanoparticle can kill or chemically alter sick cells. However, nanoparticles interact with a number of organs, tissues, and cells when they administered into the body. These biological entities sequester them and prevents the nanoparticles from being delivered at a high enough concentration to the diseased site to function effectively. In this presentation, I will discuss current and re-analysis of the mechanisms of nanoparticle transport in the body. These mechanism impact the design of nanomaterials for cancer targeting. Finally, I will discuss the future state in engineering of nanotechnology for cancer imaging and therapy.
