Nanoscience Degree Program Future Students



Nanomedicine refers to the use of nanomaterials and nanoscale devices for the treatment, diagnosis, monitoring, and control of diseases. Focus areas in nanomedicine include research in technologies that aid in delivery of pharmaceutical compounds and diagnostic agents using appropriate nanoscale systems that allow selective targeting while minimizing the patient’s side effects. The global nanomedicine market was estimated at $139 billion in 2016. Nanomedicine students will be well-prepared for professional and graduate school as well as exciting careers in health professions, pharmaceuticals, diagnostics and imaging, medical devices and products, and many related areas. Virginia Tech has the only undergraduate Nanomedicine major in the United States.
