    Mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) have emerged as promising drug carriers. Here we highlight some recent developments related to cell-specific targeting and delivery using MSNs. Some key requirements for carrier design are discussed from a biological perspective, including a suggested experimental work-flow for the evaluation of active cell-specific targeting of nanoparticles. © 2010 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
