Seminar Abstract
Nanoparticle formulations of hydrophobic drugs present unique opportunities for treatment of
solid tumor cancers, aerosol drug delivery, and novel vaccine adjuvants. The common
requirements of these applications are precise control of particle size and surface functionality.
For cancer therapy particles in the size range of 100-200 nm passively pass through defects in the
vasculature in tumors and deposit by
