Nanomedicine is beginning to emerge from research in nanotechnology. Nanotechnologies have features on the scale of nanometers or billionths of a meter. In biology the scale of a single human hair is about 80,000 nanometers wide and a red blood cell is about 7,000 nanometers wide. Materials can be produced that are Nanoscale in one dimension (such as ultra-thin surface coatings), in two dimensions (for example, nanotubes and nanowires), or in all three dimensions (nanoparticles and Buckyballs). Nanoscale materials often have novel properties related to their high ratio of surface area and quantum effects.
