  • Did You Know?

    Did you know that several companies have been founded by researchers in the BRC? NangioTx was started by Rice University Professor Jeffrey Hartgerink, Post-Doctoral Fellow Vivek Kumar and Omar Merchant, a Physician-in-Training. The company focuses on pharmaceuticals based on self-assembling peptides delivered to tissues to stimulate blood vessel growth, focusing on chronic peripheral vascular disease. In this disease blood flow to the extremities of the body, particularly the calf and feet, is progressively blocked until tissue begins to die due to lack of oxygen and nutrients. Typical treatment requires surgery but with additional blood vessels to supply the tissue, patients might require less extreme interventions.
