Biocompatible materials with nano-scale structure hold great promise for controlled and targeted delivery and half-life extension of both small-molecule drugs and various classes of biologics, such as peptides, proteins, plasmid DNA and synthetic oligodeoxynucleotides. Promising delivery systems include microcapsules, liposomes, macromolecular conjugates, nanoparticles, dendrimers, and biological stuctures such polypeptides, benign viruses and bacteriophages. This symposium will focus on commercially promising new materials and approaches.
