Fighting infectious bacterial diseases (tuberculosis, etc.)
Fighting infectious parasitic diseases (malaria, etc.)
Fighting cancer (new antineoplasic agents)
Gene delivery
Hypoglycemic action (drugs fordiabetes treatment, etc.)
In designing an artificial red blood cell, called Respirocyte
In host-guest chemistry and combinatorial chemistry
Molecular machines
Molecular probe
Neuroprotective effect (for Alzheimer`s disease, etc.)
Organic MBBs in formation of nanostructures
Pharmacophore-based drug design
Polymer, co-polymers
