The awarded project, “Advanced Lipid Nanostructures to overcome Blood-Brain-Barrier”, of the research group led by Olga López, aims the design of lipid nanostructures to repair blood-brain barrier, the membrane that protects the brain. Nanostructures will also be designed to facilitate the access of drugs to the brain. The ultimate goal is to modify the permeability of the barrier to effectively treat diseases of the central nervous system, such as Alzheimer disease.
