Noninvasive gene delivery to the Brain

2017 - current

We are currently working on improving the noninvasive gene delivery to the brain through focused-ultrasound BBB opening (FUS-BBBO). Current work will improve cost, safety, and transduction efficiency of the technique. For an example application, see ATAC page.
