Site-specific targeting of therapeutics for inborn errors of metabolism (lysosomal storage disorders) and vascular disorders (oxidative stress) by nanocarriers. The proposed plan includes generation of interest (mainly recombinant enzymes), and characterization of their delivery and therapeutic properties in both cell cultures and laboratory animals. State-of-the art techniques to be utilized have been already optimized in our lab and include carrier formultation, molecular and cell biology, microscopy, and small procedures in animal models. This is a high impact, translational type of project in a collaborative environment, optimal for rapid scientific development.
