Call for Papers: Extracellular Vesicles for Drug Delivery in Cancer Treatment

We are calling for submissions to our new Collection focusing on the use of extracellular vesicles (EVs) for cancer drug delivery, including but not limiting to the choice of EV sources, the drug encapsulation techniques, and the assessment of delivery efficiency and efficacy, etc.

Aims and scope

Biological Procedures Online publishes articles that improve access to techniques and methods in the medical and biological sciences. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, reports of new research techniques and applications of existing techniques, technical analyses of research techniques and published reports, validity analyses of research methods and approaches to judging the validity of research reports, reviews of existing techniques, and novel or important product information.
