RSC Advances is delighted to announce a new themed collection titled ‘Nanomaterials in drug delivery’. This collection is Guest Edited by Dr Irina Savina (University of Brighton) and Professor Helder Almeida Santos (University of Helsinki).
Recent developments in nanomaterials have shown huge potential for the development of advanced drug delivery systems and have already expanded to a wide range of clinical applications. More recently the emphasis has been placed on personalised medicine, precision therapy, cancer treatment, immunotherapy, nanovaccines and RNA/gene delivery. However, there is still insufficient research on nanomaterials with specific relevance to regulatory issues, in particular with respect to the development of safety testing and risk assessment methods, and increasing the availability of quality data on nanomaterials for regulatory purposes.
This themed collection in RSC Advances aims to explore the latest developments in the design, preparation, and application of nanomaterials for drug delivery, understanding bio-nano interactions and biosystem parameters, assessing the safety of nanomedicine, potential limitations of nanomedicine fabrication including technical and legal aspects.
