Light-Activated Nanoparticle Based Gene Delivery System

Louisiana State University, Louisiana, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

The technology is a precise and effective nanoparticle based gene delivery system to facilitate tissue repair. Micro RNA, which induces cell differentiation, is delivered to damaged tissue via a nanoparticle carrier and released by a particular wavelength of light. This allows for targeted repair of complex tissues.
