  7. STTR Phase I: Sustained Delivery of Peptides with Inverse Flash Nanoprecipitation

    SBC: Optimeos Life Sciences, Inc.            Topic: BM

    This STTR Phase I project aims to pioneer a novel approach for the sustained delivery of peptide therapeutics using nano-composite microparticles. Peptide therapeutics tend to suffer from rapid enzymatic degradation and clearance, with half-lives on the order of minutes, and require frequent injections. The goal of a sustained release formulation is to reduce the frequency of injections by slowly ...
