Novel ChABC formulation with machine learning-guided automation
​ ​ Invention Summary: Spinal cord injury (SCI) leads to the formation of scar tissue. The scarring leads to the toughening of the extracellular matrix, or the cellular environment. One of the major concerns of SCI is the prevention of neuronal connection recovery, which can lead to paralysis or reduced control of the nervous system. For...

Improved Nerve Conduits for Treatment of Peripheral Nerve Injuries
Scanning electron microscope image of conduits Invention Summary: Nerve conduits are used for treatment of peripheral nerve injuries. However, the current conduits are associated with poor healing resulting from swelling and reduction of luminal volume, suture pull-out, collapse, kinking, compression, and lack of mechanical strength to withstand...

PEG Nanocarriers, Nanogels and Synthesis Methods
Invention Summary: A novel platform of PEG-only nanocarriers and nanogels has been developed by Rutgers scientists. The nanocarriers can be used from 100Da-100- kDa and are capable of forming stable nanogels and nanogel aggregates in a variety of sizes from 20-30nm up to >1000nm. The carriers and gels have improved solubility over existing technologies...

Film Forming Foam (FFF) for Burn Wounds/Burnflex
Invention Summary: Many of the available burn dressings on the market use latex, PVC or polyurethane as means of barrier-like components to protect the patient from outside elements. The current use of these components presents a problem of waste and contamination. Other available options in the market are hydrogel-based dressings that may be coated...

Doxycycline Loaded Poly(Ethylene Glycol) Hydrogels for Healing Vesicant-Induced Ocular Wounds
Invention Summary: Rutgers scientists have invented a method of loading poly (ethylene glycol) hydrogels with doxycycline to treat vesicant-induced (i.e. sulfur mustard gas) ocular wounds. The effectiveness of doxycycline, an FDA approved drug in humans, was previously limited in ocular treatment due to tear washing on the eye’s surface. The...
