Novel microcarriers with advanced functionalities have been produced by creative design strategies to encapsulate bioactive agents such as drugs and cells. The new synthetic routes to microcarriers have enabled precise control over size, shape, and structure of particles, capsules, and foldable carriers and provided high efficiency of encapsulations, creating new opportunities for biological applications.
