Materials with empty spaces can be used to trap and store cargo for subsequent delivery at a targeted time and location. Such materials are known as delivery systems. Over the past few years, our group has focused on delivery systems based on porous MOF/COF/MOPs, organic polymers, micelles and vesicles (liposomes). We are currently designing novel stimuli-responsive systems able to release their cargo in response to specific triggers under controllable conditions. Likewise, we are developing novel systems for delivery of therapeutic agents for several diseases, including diabetes, multiple sclerosis, AIDS and stroke.
