The market for advanced drug delivery system is rising rapidly, because many new drugs rely on novel and innovative drug delivery techniques, and such drug delivery systems can as well improve existing drugs’ therapeutic efficacy, alleviatedrug side effects,reduce cost etc. Here I would like to introduce our research development in innovating and improving drug delivery and bioimagingbased on micro and nanotechnologies, including microneedle arrays for painless and efficient transdermal vaccination, nanoneedle arrays for high-throughput intracellular delivery, and nanomaterials for improved cancer therapy and bioimaging.
Dr.Xianfeng Chen received his BEng, MSc and PhD from Xi’an Jiaotong University, National University of Singapore and University of Oxford, respectively. He then worked in Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology at The University of Queensland first as a postdoc and then research fellow for four years. In March 2011, he joined the Department of Physics and Materials Science at the City University of Hong Kong as an assistant professor. He has published 50peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters, including over 30 of the publications in the fields of drug delivery, biomaterials, biomedical engineering and nanomedicine. He holds 6 patent families in drug delivery technologies (including 23 patent applications in major countries/regions including USA, Europe, and Canada).
