Therapeutic Nanoparticles: Fantasy or Reality? Engineering solutions and the road ahead
Monday, December 3, 2018
Nanoparticles possess outstanding properties that make them excellent candidates for therapeutic applications. However, the clinical and in vivo use of nanoparticles for therapeutic purposes face significant challenges depending on the application.
In the case of cancer treatment, the most significant is how to get the enough nanoparticles to the desired target. Throughout the years, our laboratory has used innovative engineering approaches to circumvent these challenges. This presentation will summarize these solutions and provide insight into the road ahead.
