Abstract

The behavior of cells and how they react to stimuli is critically important for drug development, drug delivery, and understanding the molecular basis of many diseases. However, we still lack a comprehensive understanding of these interactions, particularly in relation to drug delivery from nanoparticles. This Sensors Issues article discusses the importance of quantifying these interactions and highlights some key areas where advances in sensor technology have the potential to transform our understanding of drug delivery and cell biology.
