Cell-based research is a booming sector in life science. In vitro assays on cultured cells greatly foster the development of novel therapy concepts for a broad range of diseases, and upcoming techniques such as tissue engineering will soon bring benefits in the field of regenerative medicine. Especially the beginning era of Nanomedicine, including e.g. the specific targeting of cells with drug-loaded particles, fundamentally depends on a profound initial characterization of the interaction process with the external surroundings.
