Symposium SM08—Emerging Strategies and Applications in Drug Delivery
Controlled drug delivery systems have been successful in introducing new formulations for better use of existing drugs and novel delivery of biologicals. The initial success in the field, however, reached a plateau, and the progress over the last decade has been slow. The limitations of established delivery technologies have hampered progress in multiple areas as the potential of exciting new materials, insights into disease mechanism, and approaches to cell therapy are not fully realized due to their delivery challenges. This symposium will focus on the innovation and advances in the materials and devices for drug delivery and their emerging applications in immunotherapy, gene editing and other drug delivery areas.
