Every summer, the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic organizes the Prague Meetings on Macromolecules, which are focused on special topics of polymer chemistry and physics. The papers included in this volume of Macromolecular Symposia were delivered at the 48th Microsymposium ‘‘Polymer Colloids: From Design to Biomedical and Industrial Applications,’’ held 20–24 July 2008 in Prague.
The microsymposium, chaired by D. Horák from the Institute and co-chaired by J. Snupárek from the University of Pardubice, focused on new methods in design, development, modeling, characterization, and application of advanced polymer colloids both in industry and life sciences, such as biomedicine and biomedical diagnostics. Biomedical applications and polymers for drug and gene delivery have become an important issue of the host Institute in Prague. The program coverage was granted by a number of top specialists as keynote and main lecturers. Ten keynote lectures and 14 main lectures were presented by invited speakers, while 40 special lectures and 96 poster presentations were provided by other participants. Selected presentations are now reported in an extended form in this volume.
