You Han Bae Receives 4-year NIH R01 Research Grant for Oral Gene Delivery System

Professor You Han Bae received a 4-year NIH R01 Research grant for his innovative proposal titled "Oral Gene Delivery Targeting Distal Ileocyte". This grant will work to create an orally administered gene delivery system, which preferentially transfect ileal epithelial enterocytes (ileocytes) in the small intestine, using nonviral carrier vectors constructed from safe biological and pharmaceutical components. The total funding for this project is $1.5 million, an will goes through June 2021.
