Controlled Delivery & Targeted Delivery Platform

Focus: High-Throughput Combinatorial Synthesis, Screening and Optimization Platform

Target: Drug Delivery System Development and Clinical Translation

Injectable (~ 55%) and oral (~ 33%) delivery are still the major drug delivery routes. Improving the targeting of the drug or drug-content cargo and developing on-demand delivery could dramatically improve the therapeutic efficiency and decrease the toxicity of the drug during the circulation of the drug in the bottom. To achieve these requirements, developing targeting strategies and investigating the drug-cargo interactions and cargo-cell interactions are essential. High-throughput manufacturing, characterization, screening and selection will provide a precise engineering strategy to develop and optimize a combinational drug delivery system, this will be efficient for the clinical translation of the drug delivery system. It includes high-throughput drug encapsulation and delivery material development, which provides efficient combinatorial library for optimizing structure-activity properties of the control-delivery cargos. It also includes the screening, selection and the evolution of the target-specific affinitive materials, such as affibodies, anticalins, adNectins, and aptamers, which improves the efficiency of the targeted delivery in the injection based or oral therapeutics. Finally, the high-throughput process includes the evaluation and optimization of the drug-delivery system performance in-vitro and in-vivo.
