Special Issue Information
It is obvious from research articles published in the literature that massive strides have been made in understanding how diseases develop and progress. In conjunction with this, researchers are also continuing to exert a great deal of effort in their exploration of the different ways that our bodies respond to diseases. This information has been crucial in aiding researchers investigating the field of drug delivery in producing solutions that allow the efficient treatment of diseases. These advances in medicine, biology and engineering have opened new avenues and approaches for drug delivery research. Over the last two decades, drug delivery systems and devices containing small molecules and macromolecules have revolutionized treatment approaches, particularly in the area of cancer. The aim of the current Special Issue is to focus on cutting-edge research in the field of novel drug delivery systems carried out in the United Kingdom. Advancing drug delivery technologies and targeting delivery coupled with other technologies in medicine, biology, chemistry and engineering could pave the way in diagnosing and treating diseases in one step, with the potential to increase life expectancy.
In this Special Issue, we solicit the submission of original articles from researchers based in the UK or review articles where the main focus of the article is research carried out in the UK in the field of drug delivery (based on the keywords below).
