Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Gene therapy promises effective treatment for a variety of diseases, including cystic fibrosis, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. Safe and efficient gene delivery vehicles are essential to advance gene therapy to clinical arena. Several investigators are involved in developing new carrier materials and fabricating functional materials aimed at improving gene therapy protocols. This Special Issue of Molecules will publish a collection of articles with a focus on “Gene Delivery”, including DNA and RNA delivery using viral and non-viral vectors. Original articles and reviews will be published in this Special Issue.
