Drug delivery systems and devices constitute an important component of modern diagnostics and therapy and have been applied successfully in achieving targeted therapy and/or controlled drug release. The convergence of engineering, medicine, and pharmacy has led to the emergence of a number of innovative drug delivery systems and devices and profoundly influenced the application of drugs in clinical practice to improve drug therapy outcomes.
This Special Issue invites review and research articles to cover a broad range of drug delivery topics such as design, fabrication, in vitro and in vivo studies, as well as latest advances in drug delivery systems and device technologies and applications.
