Liposomes, Part F

Edited by

  • Nejat Duzgunes, University of The Pacific School of Dentistry, San Francisco, California, U.S.A.

Liposomes are cellular structures made up of lipid molecules, which are water insoluble organic molecules and the basis of biological membranes. Important as a cellular model in the study of basic biology, liposomes are also used in clinical applications such as drug delivery and virus studies. Liposomes Part F is a continuation of previous MIE Liposome volumes A through E.
