Roth, Uhrich and Team Issued Patent

A patent entitled "Amphiphilic Macromolecules for Nucleic Acid Delivery" was issued recently to Professors Kathryn Uhrich (CCB), Charles Roth (BME/CBE), along with former Ph.D. students Sarah Sparks, Alex Harmon, Li Gu (all CCB) and Carolyn Federici (CBE). The invention is based on the design and synthesis of novel macromolecular architectures with tunable domains for sequestration of nucleic acids and for cellular entry.
