Focus Groups

Focus Groups are built on the concept of providing opportunities to network with field leaders, exposure for your research program, and to become a vital part of your research community.


If you are experiencing difficulty please email us at with your name, ID and the focus group(s) you would like to join and we will be happy to assist you.

Bioinspired and Biomimetic Drug Delivery (BBDD)

See BBDD page for more information.

BBDD focuses on the bioinspired and biomimetic strategies for the design of advanced drug delivery systems. Bioinspired methods that involve construction of biological building blocks, or leveraging bio-interactions are being widely implemented to create various delivery formulations. Mimicking the physicochemical and physiological properties of natural particulates, ranging from pathogens to mammalian cells, facilitates control release of therapeutics.

Gene Delivery and Editing (GDE)

See GDE page for more information.

GDE focuses on creating a better fundamental understanding of the barriers of gene delivery and editing, designing improved carriers, and realizing opportunities for therapeutic intervention. Relevant topics include nucleic acid-based approachres for generating therapeutic proteins (e.g. mRNA, pDNA), eliminating disease causing proteins (e.g. SiRNA, miRNA, ASOs), and precisely editing the genome (e.g. CRISPR/Cas, TALENs, ZFNs).

Nanomedicine and Nanoscale Drug Delivery (NNDD)

See NNDD page for more information.

NNDD focuses on integrative discussions in the field of nanomedicine and biomedical nanotechnology for the design of advanced drug delivery systems.

Ocular Drug Delivery (OcDD)

See OcDD page for more information.

OcDD focuses on studies that highlight the challenges and opportunities unique to the treatment of vision-threatening diseases.

Oral Drug Delivery (OrDD)

See ODD page for more information.

OrDD focuses on research that continues to revolutionize the methods used to formulate and manufacture small molecule and biologic drugs to maximize their oral bioavailability.
