Theme 7

Drug Discovery, Design and Delivery

The focus of this theme is on the discovery, design and delivery of novel therapeutics as remedial agents. This will encompass recent techniques of drug design and delivery strategies that will be strengthened by novel methods and materials and, consider interfaces between nanotechnology and life processes. The other aim here is on targeted delivery to improve efficiency of treatment and reduce side effects. The long term goal is to find newer targets and molecules to provide novel effective drugs based on specific biological targets.
