The Modelling and experiments in drug delivery systems 2016 (MEDDS2016) workshop aims to present state-of-the-art research on modelling and experimental approaches for drug delivery systems. The goal is to bring mathematicians, biologists, physicians and engineers together in an open discussion environment.
Controlled drug delivery systems like drug-eluting stents, transdermal patches, and intravitreal implants have become a common tool in clinical practice. These drug delivery systems combine a platform with a drug in a such way that the active agent is efficiently released to a target organ, while maintaining the drug concentration within a therapeutic window during an extended period of time. Devices and drugs can be tuned to meet the individual patient needs.
