In the design and development of nanoparticle platforms for biotechnology and biomedical applications, biocompatibility and functionality are important considerations. In this chapter, we discuss the key characteristics of lipoprotein-based nanoparticles, and how the versatility of their self-Assembly accommodates a wide range of starting components to provide tunable control of size, stability, and functionality. Orthogonal strategies are described to facilitate the incorporation of bioactive cargo molecules (including drugs, nucleic acids, and proteins) for a wide range of applications, ranging from multifunctional vaccine formulations to targeted drug delivery.
