Research Grant: AFM Lettre d'engagement. Gene therapy for hereditary muscle diseases using novel AAV immune stealth nanotechnology

Project Details


Nanotechnology is an area of science devoted to the design, construction and utilization of functional structures on the nanometer scale (often 100nm or smaller). Therapeutic applications of nanotechnologies include the treatment of cancer liver diseases. Avoiding the recognition by the liver is also possible by developing long circulating polymeric colloidal carriers ("stealth" systems) able to avoid the opsonisation process and the recognition by the macrophages
