The prevalence of central nervous diseases poses significant challenges to society, particularly with the global aging population. While various potential chemical agents, antibodies, and genes have been developed for the treatment of these diseases, the effectiveness of these treatments is greatly hindered by the presence of the blood-brain barrier.

We are pleased to announce that the American Chemical Society journal Bioconjugate Chemistry will publish a Special Issue titled “Brain Targeted Drug Delivery.” With this issue we aim to bring together researchers from different disciplines to share their knowledge and expertise in brain targeted drug delivery.

We welcome topics including, but not limited to:

  • Novel approaches to overcome the blood-brain barrier
  • Intranasal delivery methods for efficient drug transport to the brain
  • Innovative drug delivery strategies for a variety of central nervous system diseases
  • Emerging combinations of therapies for the treatment of glioma and Alzheimer’s disease
