Title: Nanoparticles for Delivery
Rationally designed nanomaterialshold great promise as next-generation drug delivery systems. Over the years we have developed skillsets in nanoparticle design, characterization and understanding of the relationshipbetween nanoparticle structure and delivery performance. We have prepared engineered nanoparticles with adjustable compositions and structures for various drug delivery applications. In this presentation we will answer to three questions: where to deliver, what to deliver, and why nanoparticles? Highlights will be given to applications for animal healthcareand pesticide control.
