Abstract

Advances in nanotechnology offer the possibility of tailored delivery of therapeutics with real-time imaging of disease. In this issue of Chem, Steunou and co-workers amalgamate the powerful MRI properties of ultra-small paramagnetic iron oxides with the excellent drug-delivery capabilities of metal-organic frameworks to produce theranostic nanoparticulate devices for cancer treatment and imaging.
