Welcome to the World of Nanomedicines
Bioresponsive Polymer Therapeutics: Synthesis and Characterisation of Novel Nanomedicines

EPSRC Platform Grant 2006 – 2010

The descriptor "polymer therapeutics" is an umbrella term used to describe polymeric drugs, polymer-drug conjugates, polymer-protein conjugates, polymeric micelles to which drug is covalently bound, and multi-component polyplexes being developed as non-viral vectors. All sub-classes use specific water-soluble polymers, either as the bioactive itself or as an inert functional part of a multi-faceted construct for improved drug, protein or gene delivery.
