Supramolecular assemblies and interactions play a crucial role in naturally occurring biological systems. Dendrimer-based technologies provide a platform for mimicking these naturally occurring biological assemblies to design synthetic alternatives in the field of nanomedicine. Dendrimers and dendritic polymers with unique inherent supramolecular features and multivalent properties permit tailoring interactions with a range of biological cargoes for drug delivery. Importantly, the high density of surface functionalities provides opportunities for targeted cell-specific interactions. This article provides a comprehensive insight into the supramolecular applications of dendrimer-based nanomedicines in the fields of gene and drug delivery and biomimicry.
