Tumour-targeted delivery of therapeutic nanoparticles

ABOUT

Nanocapture is a translational biomedical research project. Our small pre-seed team is based at the Pharmacy Department at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich, Germany. Supported by the GO-Bio program of the German Federal Government – BMBF, our team is aiming to significantly improve the selectivity of drug delivery during tumour chemotherapies. In our key proof-of concept studies, we could demonstrate that our lead product, NanoCap-DLV, effectively slows down tumour progression in aggressive models of pancreatic and breast cancer compared to the standard of care.
