The primary purpose of the Cancer Nanotechnology Plan 2015 is to serve as a strategic document to the NCI Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer as well as a guiding document to the cancer nanotechnology and oncology fields, as a whole. Now in its third incarnation, it has increased in its scope since its inception in 2005, mostly due to the fact that the field has significantly matured and expanded over this time. It includes contributions from researchers, clinicians, policy makers, and industrial experts in order to give a broad perspective on where the field is now and where it is heading in the future. The plan is also available in a reduced form as a slide presentation to train others as to the field and future potential for clinical cancer care.
