  • Projects

    Development of Novel Curcumin-Folate Drug conjugates for targeted delivery of Drug and Curcumin toge(ICMR)
    Traditional cancer therapies are unable to target 0.1-3% cancer progenitor cells that have been implicated in drug resistance, tumor recurrence and metastasis which are major obstacles in cancer treatment leading to widespread mortality The present project has been designed to develop a non-toxic triple conjugate comprising curcumin-Folic acid and an anticancer drug which will specifically be taken up by cancer and cancer stem cells via receptor mediated internalization due to overexpression ofby (ICMR)
