Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Developments in fundamental knowledge and engineering sciences have helped the field of pharmaceutics. Nanotechnology-based materials are emerging as drug delivery carriers. This Special Issue entitled “Advances in Nanoparticle-Mediated Drug Delivery” from Scientia Pharmaceutica calls for cutting-edge research and review manuscripts dealing with insights of current developments of nanoparticles for targeted drug delivery. The issue will be focused on molecular drug targets, including disease-specific proteins, receptors, enzymes, and genes, which seek to elucidate the impact of new therapeutic agents on patient acceptability, preference, satisfaction, and quality of life.
