Applications of artificial intelligence in drug delivery and pharmaceutical development

Stefano Colombo,    Independent Scientist, Leon, Spain


Drug delivery aims to potentiate the therapeutic effect of medicinal drugs by conferring augmented physicochemical features upon them, for example, by overcoming the inherent instability of biologics, which impairs their pharmacokinetics. Taking advantage of the interactions with nano- to micron-size biological components, drug delivery has become strongly associated with nanotechnological innovation. Today, drug delivery is rapidly expanding, surpassing the borders between pharmaceutical sciences, biosciences, and engineering. This unprecedented transformation has been prompted by the ...
