Biologics

CBIS researchers are creating new drug therapies and delivery systems, focusing on agents derived from naturally occurring proteins or bioengineering new classes of drugs. Examples include:

  • Bioengineered therapeutics, including a contamination-free form of the anticoagulant heparin
  • Nanoscale therapeutics that inhibit anthrax toxins
  • Mapping protein networks using biocomputation and bioinformatics to enable more effective intervention in biological processes
