55. Weiterentwicklungen der beschriebenen nicht-virale Gen-Transfektion-Systeme sind immer denkbar. In Kapitel 2 haben wir die Komplexierung und den Aggregationsmechanismus von Nukleinsä uren mit Polykationen auf atomarer und molekularer Ebene untersucht. In diesem Projekt wurden molekularen Modellierung, molekulardynamische Simulation, isotherme Titrationskalorimetrie und andere Charakterisierungsmethoden angewendet. Trotzdem besteht immer Bedarf für neue Untersuchungsmethode zur Charakterisierung der pDNA-oder siRNA-Lokalisierung innerhalb der Komplexe. Es ist daher sinnvoll, neue mikroskopische Methoden weiterzuentwickeln.
