2010 DDP Awards: Technology Innovation Nominee: Wallace H. Coulter Center for Translational Research, University of Miami

Technology: a novel Nanoparticle which offers unique targeted in vivo delivery of nucleic acids into Antigen Presenting Cells (APC) resulting in robust / protective immune responses.

The platform is not only ideal for “Genetic Vaccination” as it targets APC and activates helper T cells, it, incidentally, may be used as delivery of nucleic acids including siRNA into such mononuclear cells which has broad therapeutic applications. Wallace H. Coulter Center of the University of Miami is a technology development center for biomedical innovation. WHCC is unique in acting as a catalyst for moving innovative University of Miami research with commercial potential from the bench to industry.
