Message from Management
Mariko Tosu(Founder and Chairperson) and Fumikazu Wanibuchi(President & CEO)
would have some messages to everyone.
Braizon Therapeutics, Inc. was established with the aim of applying and implementing, within the fields of medicine and life science, innovative technology for the delivery of drugs to the brain as the outcome of collaborative research by Professor Kazunori Kataoka from the Graduate School of Engineering/Medicine, the University of Tokyo and Professor Takanori Yokota from the Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, Tokyo Medical and Dental University.
Professor Kataoka and Professor Yokota have codeveloped breakthrough technology enabling drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) in close combination with nano-material engineering and neuroscience expertise, respectively.
Braizon Therapeutics has built a Drug Delivery System Platform from this technology, which we make available to Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, and Academic partners globally through licensing partnerships. Building on the power of this platform technology and the drug development expertise with Team Braizon, we are creating new therapies for underserved CNS disorders within our ‘Needs-focused’ pipeline.
In addition to GLUT1, we are developing a transferrin receptor (TfR) pathway as a delivery route for Brain Access ®. See more
