New US patent

I am an inventor on a new US patent, my fourth to date: Particles with multiple functionalized surface domains

This disclosure relates to particles (e.g., nanoparticles and microparticles) that display multiple functionalized surface domains in a controlled mosaic pattern. The disclosure also provides simple methods to create various particles that have multiple functionalized surface domains while allowing the use of a wide variety of diverse core structures. The multiple functionalized domains provide controllable particle binding and orientation, and controlled and sustained drug release profiles.
