Delivery Systems and Devices for Drugs and Biologics

The area of delivery systems and devices for drugs and biologics includes the delivery of nucleic acids, peptides, proteins, vaccines, genes, small molecules, and theranostics. Emphasis is on the engineering of new delivery vehicles that may include (but are not limited to) novel biomaterials, liposomes, micelles, nanoparticles, and dendrimers; or various delivery modalities that may include, for example, ultrasound, electroporation, implantable pumps, or stimulators. The scope of work may include, for example, development of the delivery vehicle or device itself, and proof of concept testing through preliminary in vitro and in vivo studies.
