Magneto-electric (ME) materials with core-shell architecture where the core is made of magnetic materials have emerged as an attractive nanomaterial due to the coupling of magnetic and electric properties in the same material and the fact that both fields can be controlled which allows an on-demand, transport and release of loaded cargo. Over the last decade, biomedical engineers and researchers from various interdisciplinary fields have successfully demonstrated promising properties ranging from therapeutic delivery to sensing, and neuromodulation using ME materials. In this review, we systematically summarize developments in various biomedical fields using the nanoforms of these materials. Herein, we also highlight various promising biomedical applications where the ME nanocarriers are encapsulated in other materials such as gels and liposomes and their potential for promising therapeutics and diagnostic applications.
