Emerging Opportunities in the Biomedical Applications of Dendrimers

Christian Agatemor, Alaa S. Abd-El-Aziz


The medical field remains challenged with many unmet needs, prompting rigorous research for solutions. Dendrimers are emerging as innovative solutions to many unmet clinical needs. Indeed, commercial dendrimer-enabled gene transfection technologies exist and work is ongoing to translate many other dendrimer products into the market to assist patients. Here, we review the ongoing work on dendrimer-enabled drug delivery technologies, diagnostic platforms, and antimicrobial agents. Our goal is to inspire the continuous exploration of the dendritic scaffold to address many issues in the biomedical landscape.
