NanoMedical Systems (NMS) is a startup company, which will commercialize the patented research of Dr. Mauro Ferrari at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, a sponsored research site and a source of licensed IP for NMS. The company's Personalized Molecular Drug-delivery System (PMDS) is a small drug delivery device that is implanted subcutaneously (just under the skin) for slow and consistent release of a therapeutic agent over many weeks or months. A nanochannel delivery system (nDS) embodied on a silicon chip regulates the flow of therapeutic molecules.
