The present invention relates to the field of pharmaceutics and nanotechnology, particularly a functionalized glycolipid and its use in a vesicular carrier for delivering medical drugs to specific target cells. The vesicular carrier shields the drug from untimely interaction with body cells, whereas chemically bonded biological receptor antigens at the functionalized glycolipids direct the carrier to the targeted cells, particularly tumor cells and bacteria.
