Yosemite A (Hilton San Francisco)
#543 - Drug Delivery (I) (15D05)
This session highlights recent research efforts in the broad area of design, characterization (in vitro and in vivo), and development of drug delivery systems with multi-functional properties for targeted and sustained drug delivery. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Effects of chemical structure and/or physical properties of drug delivery systems on loading efficiency and release kinetics; functionalizing drug carriers with moieties for specific targeting; blood circulation time and biodistribution of drug-carrier complexes after systemic injection; in vitro and in vivo studies of cellular uptake.
