SBIR Phase I: High Throughput Screening of Multivalent Drugs and Nanomedicine

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Athena Guo, PhD
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project develops cell membrane mimetic-microarrays for high-throughput screening and analysis of multivalent drug candidates, particularly nanomedicine. Traditional drugs based on mono-valent and high-affinity interactions can lead to non-specific side… More
