Beclin 2-Functionalized Therapies for Treatment of Neurodegenerative Disease and Cancer
This invention identified that Beclin 2 functions as a negative regulator of the ERK1/2 signaling, NF-κB signaling, and inflammasome activation. Furthermore, these studies demonstrated that Beclin 2 targets key signalling kinases for degradation through an ATG9A-dependent autophagic pathway. These new findings have uncovered an important role...

IRF4-Targeted Therapies for Cancer, Transplant Rejection, and Autoimmune Disorders
This invention is a method of depleting or over-expressing the transcription factor, interferon regulatory factor 4 (IRF4), in T cells as therapeutic strategy for conditions which are highly regulated by the immune system. The inventors have established that IRF4 represses PD-1, Helios, and other molecules associated with T cell function, representing...

Biomimetic Anti-Inflammatory Membrane for Chronic Wound Healing
The invention is a collagen membrane functionalized with mannose for the treatment of chronic wounds. Due to its mannose coating, this membrane is able to induce the polarization of macrophages to an anti-inflammatory state, resulting in less overall inflammation during wound repair. Stage of Development In vitro data: Membrane synthesis and characterization...
