Polymer carriers with finely controlled and responsive properties have received increasing interest for biomedical applications. On page 4718, Frank Caruso and co-workers report a facile and robust approach to prepare pH-labile drug-loaded polymer particles by combining mesoporous silica-templated assembly and polymer-drug conjugates for drug delivery into cancer cells. These particles are a novel and versatile class of stimuli-responsive carriers for controlled drug delivery.
