Nanomedicine aims to control, repair, or comprehensively improve all human biological systems, working from a molecular level with engineering devices and nanostructures to achieve medical benefits. This science has had a greater development in recent years, thanks to the great technological advances achieved in developed countries, which is due to the large investment that is made due to the promising incursion of nanotechnology in the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases. This chapter covers this topic from a technical point of view that involves the synthesis of materials and the development of techniques with their respective biomedical application. In addition, the ethical issues related to its application and the actions that have been taken to regulate it are detailed.

Keywords: Applications, Biocompatibility, Biomedical devices, Characterization techniques, Composites, Diagnosis, Disinfection, Drug delivery, Implants, Nanomedicine, Nanoparticles, Nanotechnology, Polymers, Regenerative medicine, Regulations, Synthesis, Technology, Therapy, Toxicity, Treatments.
