In the past decade, the poor water-solubility of many drugs has become a focal point of the pharmaceutical industry. In addition, it has also driven the innovation of several novel techniques to administer safe and effective drug levels. Nanoparticles have been proven to achieve a faster solubility rate, and thus, a higher bioavailability of the drug. Furthermore, nanoparticles exhibit many other unique advantages for drug delivery including: passive targeting, ease of suspension, variable optical properties, and the ability to be functionalized. This session welcomes papers focused on the synthesis, characterization, stabilization and modeling of nanoparticle systems with pharmaceutical applications. A particular focus of this section is given to the interactions with polymers and surfactants and contributions to mechanisms of stabilization and drug delivery.
