Our lab is one of the only labs in the country to be studying the use of bioengineered vault nanoparticle technology to stimulate the immune system against brain cancer such as GBM.
Using Nano technology to attack brain cancer
Naturally occurring vaults are proteins that are already organic and natural to human cells. Bioengineered vault nanoparticle vaccines containing immunogenic antigens have recently demonstrated the ability to induce an active immune response against Chlamydia in animal models.
