Multifunctional pharmaceutical nanocarriers

Carriers are needed for a number of reasons in drug delivery, e.g. to protect the drug from the body, to protect the body from the drug and to adjust the pharmacokinetics, i.e. distribution and clearance, of the drug. In addition it is also necessary to use approved components, to make the preparation process simple and scalable, to make a reproducible product with easy to control properties and to make the product economically.

Vladimir P. Torchilin, PhD, DSc is Distinguished Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Director, Center for Pharmaceutical Biotechnology and Nanomedicine, Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts. He graduated from Moscow University and also obtained his PhD and DSc there in polymer chemistry, chemical kinetics and catalysis, and chemistry of physiologically active compounds. In 1991 he joined Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School as the Head of the Chemistry Program and Associate Professor of Radiology. Since 1998 Dr. Torchilin has been with Northeastern University where he was Chair of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences from1998-2008. His research interests have focused on biomedical polymers, polymeric drugs, immobilized medicinal enzymes, drug delivery and targeting, pharmaceutical nanocarriers for diagnostic and therapeutic agents, and experimental cancer immunology. He has published more than 300 original papers, more than 100 reviews and book chapters, has written and edited10 books, and holds more that 40 patents.

About The Institute of Nanotechnology
The Institute of Nanotechnology (IoN) was founded by Ottilia Saxl in January 1997. It is a registered Charity, whose core activities are focused on education and training in nanotechnology, in the widest sense. It grew out of the Centre for Nanotechnology, part funded by the DTI through the UK 's National Initiative on Nanotechnology (NION). The Institute was one of the world's first nanotechnology information providers and is now a global leader.

IoN works closely with governments, universities, researchers, companies and the general public to educate and inform on all aspects of nanotechnology. It is also an organizer of international scientific events, conferences and educational courses that examine the implications of nanotechnology for industry, society, health, energy and the environment, and the disadvantaged communities across the globe.
