Burnham Institute awarded $13 M

Abstract:
The Burnham Institute has been selected as a "Program of Excellence in Nanotechnology" by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health. A partnership of 25 scientists from The Burnham Institute, University of California Santa Barbara, and The Scripps Research Institute will use the $13 million award to design nanotechnologies to detect, monitor, treat, and eliminate "vulnerable" plaque, the probable cause of death in sudden cardiac arrest.

"We intend to exploit this new understanding of atherosclerotic plaque," said Dr. Smith. "By focusing on devising nano-devices, which can be described as machines at the molecular level, we will specifically target vulnerable plaque."
