The current progress in the field of nanotechnology with respect to biomedical and biotechnology is aimed at designing novel materials that have exclusive properties of nanoscale structures. The application of nano-structured materials into biomedical systems has received much attention due to their remarkable resolution in assisting diagnoses and treating medical difficulties. The variety of nanostructured materials produced could be easily controlled and manipulated. Moreover, they could be developed with new properties in a predictable manner, whereby the modified biological characteristic and functionalities are compatible with biomedical systems for various applications and purposes. All-inclusive, nanotechnology has an enormous impact on health care and is undeniably shaping the future pathway. This paper reviews research methods in nanotechnology developments, which convey benefits to the biomedical application on nano-network and communication, biosensor, nanoprobe, drug delivery system and nano implants.

Keywords: Nanotechnology, nanostructured material, biomedical system, progression, variation, functionalities.
