About This Project

We have invented a Nanocarrier that targets the Immune System to deliver Curcumin, an anti-inflammatory agent, to the brain for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy.

Our preclinical study at Charles River Labs and the U. of Arizona, is being conducted to establish proof of effective nanocarrier delivery of Curcumin to the cells of the brain damaged by repeated traumatic athletic injuries to the head.

Blast off!
