Background on Team

A collaboration between NYU School of Medicine associate professor Phil Band and Postdoc fellow Edwin Vazquez, CytoDel safely delivers therapeutic drugs directly into nerve cells. This technology ensures active drugs reach high-value targets previously considered difficult to effectively isolate because they are inside neurons. CytoDel participated in NYU’s Venture Fellows program and completed its initial round of financing in 2014.
