Bioinspired light-responsive materials for on-demand drug delivery

Filippo Pierini and his team are developing smart nanoplatforms with enhanced biocompatibility that allows for more carefully controlled drug delivery within the body within the body over time

Polymer-based nanomaterials represent one of the most innovative and promising approaches in modern biomedical applications, including cancer and antibacterial therapy. They offer the ability to control the delivery of specific drugs within the human body. Their practical application, however, faces many challenges, for instance low tumour penetration in cancer or low drug internalisation in the case of antimicrobials. Professor Filippo […]

Textile-embedded microcapsules: The future of drug delivery

Over the years, textiles have been improved, with regards to their durability and functionality.

Research on textiles has come a long way, with numerous examples of textiles having bifunctional characteristics. Advancements in the area show the incorporation of microcapsules on textiles, containing active principles with antimicrobial, cosmetic, or even drug characteristics. Prof Manuel Jose Lis Arias, at the Terrassa Institute of Textile Research and Industrial Cooperation of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, has been […]
