The NIH has funded a phase I STTR grant focused on the treatment of traumatic brain injury using nanoparticles (Pro-NP) from ProTransit Nanotherapy.  This one-year project is in collaboration with Assistant Professor Dr. Forrest Kievit at the Department of Biological Systems Engineering, Univeristy of Nebraska, Lincoln (  The grant will demonstrate the passage of Pro-NP across the blood brain barrier into the cranium and the release of protective antioxidant enzymes to prevent secondary damage caused by development of reactive oxygen species following brain injury.
