We are amidst a nanotechnology era. The word, ?nano?, worth one-billionth (of a meter), has attained mega proportions, worth billions (of USD). Virtually, nothing remains to be nanonized at the moment, whatever may be the domain. Traversing a voyage from the origin of its idea by Richard Feynman in 1959, nanotechnology has entered into our ?present? living, society and culture to shape our ?future?. Knowledge and knowhow to engineer and manufacture the nanoscaled products have practically unleashed a revolution, creating waves all across the scientific disciplines and industrial sectors. Amongst the most promising benefits of nanotechnology galore, its applications in health care are considered as paramount. This perspective assumes immense significance, as the whole world is experiencing unprecedented medical challenges and changes in relation to diseases, diagnosis and drugs. Robert Freitas, in his book on ?Nanomedicine? in 1999, presented the first detailed discussion on the medical applications of nanotechnology, predicting its brilliant capabilities in future. It is no surprise that Nanomedicine is the fastest emerging offshoot of nanotechnology. Further integration of Nanomedicine with biological sciences, like biotechnology, biochemistry, pharmaceutical sciences, biomedical engineering, bioimaging, nanomedical robotics and biomedical technology, has spurred the genesis of a whole new field of ?NanoBioMedicine?. Founded on the premise of monitoring, repairing, constructing and controlling human biological systems at molecular level, employing various nanostructures and nanodevices, Nanobiomedicine primarily endeavors to improve upon the patient safety, efficacy, economy, and compliance of varied therapeutic, preventive and diagnostic strategies. Not merely dealing with the nuances of interactions of nanostructures with biomolecular receptors, the contemporary discipline of Nanobiomedicine also embraces the methods of design, engineering and technological trans
