Nanotechnologies and biomedicine have reached remarkable levels of integration and cross-fertilization aiming at addressing unmet clinical needs by designing functional materials and transformative technologies for precision medicine. Plasmonic metamaterials represent a small fraction of a large variety of systems proposed to treat and monitor neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. In this context, we have developed miniaturized plasmonic biosensor platforms that outperform current sensing technologies and are based on hyperbolic metamaterials, which support highly confined bulk plasmon modes. This talk will review how we harness light-matter interaction at the nanoscale to design artificial materials with extraordinary properties not readily available in nature.
