Liposomes and polymersomes have attracted significant attention and have emerged as versatile materials for therapeutic delivery and in the design of artificial cells and organelles. Through the judicious choice of building blocks, these synthetic carriers can be readily engineered with tailored interfacial properties, offering new possibilities for the design of advanced assemblies with specific permeability, stability, stimuli response, and targeting capabilities. In this feature article, we highlight recent studies on biomimetic liposome- and polymersome-based multicompartmentalized assemblies en route toward the development of artificial cells, microreactors, and therapeutic delivery car..View full abstract
