GENE AND DRUG DELIVERY

Gene and Drug Delivery

Objective:

To deliver a pharmaceutical, protein, or nucleic acid to target safely in order to induce a therapeutic effect.

What We Do:

  • Implantable biomedical scaffolds
  • Injectable nano particles & micro particles
  • Proteins, plasmids, viruses, small molecules

Applications:

  • Cancer/tumor treatment by targeting cancer cells
  • Regenerative medicine: trophic factors can be made available that can promote the formation of functional tissues
  • Autoimmune diseases/allergies – desensitize a patient to specicfic protiens or factors that induce an aberrant immune response
  • Inflammatory diseases – modulate the trafficking of immune cells that can create inflammation following injury
