Nanomedicine: Transcending from embryonic to adolescent

Sometime in 2006 we embarked on a journey to establish a focused, accurate and well-respected scientific publication to reflect the excitement, opportunities as well as the scepticism and potential risks surrounding the newly fledged sub-field of nanomedicine. Almost 3 years later both the Editors and the Publishers of this journal are all delighted to see Nanomedicine at the publishing forefront of the field, with very rapid acceptances in most bibliographic search engines including PubMed and the ISI Science Citation Index and a very respectable first Impact Factor of 2.818.
