    SPECIAL TOPIC: Magnetic and plasmonic nanoparticles for biomedical devices. GUEST EDITORS: Nikolai  Khlebtsov and Ricardo Ibarra. The design of magnetic and plasmonic nanoparticles for biomedical applications is a rapidly expanding and multidisciplinary field ripe for discoveries and a diversity of applications in cancer imaging and therapy. These nanoparticles allow us to manipulate the internal state of living cells and to monitor their return to equilibrium in a manner that is unique to such approaches. The synthesis of these nanostructures and their physical applications in the field of biomedical engineering are discussed in this Special Topic.
