Bioscientists who want to shed light on the origin, evolution, and distribution of life in the universe don’t have to travel very far to do it.
Getting cancer drugs to their target can be difficult under the best of circumstances, but in the case of brain cancer the challenge is compounded by the blood-brain barrier- a semipermeable barrier that has evolved to keep the brain “safe” from toxins in the blood.
Faculty at Georgia Tech, Emory University, and Georgia State University have been selected to receive a broad range of support from Biolocity to accelerate the commercialization of their patient impacting technologies.
Representatives from the world of cell manufacturing attended a workshop on the role of standards in cell and tissue manufacturing, Oct. 2 at the Georgia Institute of Technology, and event that organizers see as another critical step on the road to developing new technologies and therapies.
Biolocity stems from the expansion of a successful five year pilot in which the program awarded over $6.2 million to 40 innovative projects leading to 20 start-ups, two industry partnerships, and three products on the market.
Students taking Manu Platt’s BMED 3600 class this year will be exposed to much more than the physiology of cellular and molecular systems. Platt, associate professor in the Wallace H.
