Pipelines of Promise

Vascular BioSciences (VBS)

CAR has shown success in improving sepsis mortality, in triple-negative breast cancer, ameliorating cachexia, and in enabling pulmonary specific vasodilation in pulmonary hypertension.

Technologies of Tomorrow

ProTransit Nanotherapy


Nanotherapy company delivers antioxidant enzymes for treatment of skin photoaging. Enzymes are encapsulated and thereby stabilized for transdermal delivery and slow release of the active enzymes deep in the skin. We replace what the skin loses upon sun exposure & age for next generation skincare.
