Nanotech could be the next frontier of drug delivery

Nanotechnology is an emerging and rapidly developing area in the pharmaceutical and medicinal field.

For example, nanoparticles can be used as drug delivery systems. Nanotechnology could help overcome the limitations of conventional drug delivery such as biodistribution and intracellular trafficking. This can be achieved through cell-specific targeting, molecular transport to specific organelles and other approaches.

Prof Ijeoma Uchegbu is one of the scientists working in this area. A professor of pharmaceutical nanoscience at University College London, Uchegbu spoke about her work at Science Foundation Ireland’s annual Science Summit earlier this week.

Nanosynth Group plc (LON:NNN) nano-technology business that originated in Nottingham from a partnership with Nottingham Trent University. Their core mission is to develop unique ways to produce and apply nanoparticles.
