Nanotechnology for the Heart, Lungs and Blood Diseases

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) is interested in the use of nanotechnology for the diagnosis and treatment of heart, lung, and blood diseases. Examples of NHLBI interests include;

1. Development of inhaled nanoparticles for environmentally triggered release of therapeutic agents, antibodies, genes and vaccines into targeted pulmonary cells

2. Development of nano-structured surface coatings to reduce thrombosis on devices

3. Development of self-assembling scaffolds to promote regeneration of myocardium in vivo
