Bio:

Dr. Sanchez-Ramos received a Ph.D. in Pharmacology and Physiology from the University of Chicago and a medical degree (M.D.) from the University of Illinois. He trained in Neurology at the University of Chicago and as a Fellow in Movement Disorders at the University of Miami. Currently, he is a Professor of Neurology at the University of South Florida in Tampa where he holds the Helen Ellis Endowed Chair and is Director of the HDSA Center of Excellence for Huntington’s Disease. He has conducted research in neurotoxicology, the role of oxidative stress in neurodegenerative disease and studies of adult tissue-derived stem cells. Most recently Dr. Sanchez-Ramos and his team have been studying safe, non-invasive ways to deliver the gene-silencing agents to brain. Dr. Sanchez-Ramos is currently funded by NIH to study mechanisms by which our nanoparticles can carry the payload from nose-to-brain. The ultimate goal is to be able to deliver a gene-silencing therapy by intranasal instillation that can be repeated safely and repetitively in patients with HD.
