Drug delivery with nano-materials – significance and advances in Medicinal Chemistry

The development and evaluation of new drug delivery systems (particularly with nanoscale materials) has been potentiating the advances in drug development. This special issue is meant to cover recent advances in development and application of nano delivery systems, peptide based delivery systems, self assembly of peptides structures and similar natural systems, Gene delivery, lipids, liposomes, miscelle, nanoparticular and carbon nanomaterials in drug delivery, mechanistic understanding of delivery systems, and other development of nanomaterials for drug delivery in medicinal chemistry.
