The design and engineering of advanced nanostructures could allow for the development of novel medical tools useful for earlier diagnosis, more individualized treatment options, and better therapeutic strategies. Nanotechnology researchers are working on a number of different manufacturing techniques to combine organic and inorganic matrixes to biological molecules for regenerative medicine or delivery medication. In this frame, electrospinning is widely investigated to realize 3D fibrous organic, inorganic or composite nanostructures. Electrospun nanosized systems not only preserve and improve drug pharmacological activity, but also define new administration routes including transdermal delivery, permit to exclusively target the damaged site and mimic tissues structures and functionalities.
