Nanoparticle Based Drug Delivery
A drug delivery system is a technological technique that allows drugs to be delivered with precise and/or controlled release. Medicines have been used for centuries to improve health and prolong life. Biomedical engineers have made significant contributions to our understanding of the physiological barriers to successful drug delivery, such as drug transport through the circulatory system and drug movement through cells and tissues. They also helped develop many of the targeted drug management strategies currently in clinical use.
