What We Offer

Summary

The Kumar lab develops novel peptide based hydrogels that can be injected and re-self-assemble inside tissue. These constructs can then be designed to deliver drugs and other small cargo over month long periods. Facile modification of the base peptide allows for the development of novel drugs that can specifically target angiogenesis, neurogenesis, osteogenesis and even delivery of antigenic sequences for vaccine development.
