What is MGMR®

MGMR is versatile intracellular delivery vehicle, consisting of a dispersion of hollow, nanoscale tubules approximately 1/10,000th the width of a human hair.

The high aspect-ratio, nanoscale profile of MGMR allows it to readily penetrate cells without compromising membrane integrity or inducing cytotoxicity. Its high surface-to-volume ratio and tunable surface chemistry allow it to readily transport both small and large-molecular cargos into the cytoplasm, including oligonucleotides, peptides, proteins and genetic materials, vector and genetic materials.

"MGMR is a functional nanotechnology, with the potential to overcome challenging obstacles for intracellular delivery—across an entire spectrum of biotechnologies." Milos Marinkovic, PH.D. Assistant Professor, UT Health
