Assessment of Liposome–Cell Interactions
Liposome-cell interactions have been assessed for over 30 years now by an enormous variety of approaches and methods. In-depth knowledge of liposome-cell interaction is still very relevant since new concepts and applications applying liposomes are being developed every day. This chapter does not aim to give a complete overview on methods to assess liposome-cell interactions but merely gives a handle to approach the assessment of liposome-cell interaction by describing some well-established methods that also allow for modification to adapt them for your specific research questions.
