Incorporate both diagnostic and therapeutic functions into a single nanoscale system is an effective modern drug delivery strategy. Combine liposomes with Semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) have great potential to achieve such dual functions, referred to in this review as a liposomal QD hybrid system (L-QD). Here we review the recent literature dealing with the design and application of L-QD for advanced in bio-imaging and drug delivery. After a summary of L-QD synthesis process and evaluation of their properties, we will focus on their multifunctional applications, ranging from in vitro cell imaging to theranostic drug delivery approaches.
