Abstract: Efficient and safe drug delivery to the site of action is still a challenging task. Carriers that combine single components according to a given pattern have been shown advantageous over continuous structures. Nanostructured systems try to mimic the cost-effective way that Nature uses to prepare responsive functional structures that regulate in the body the transport and recognition of endogenous and exogenous substances. This chapter focuses on self-assembly of lipids and polymers as well as other bottom-up strategies (e.g. molecular imprinting) that render stimuli-responsive nanostructured particles with a variety of morphologies and capabilities. Applications as self-regulable and externally-tunable drug delivery systems are revisited with a particular attention on the performance under in vivo conditions
