The core focus of C-Dots, LLC as a company is the development and implementation of safer and cost-effective nano drug delivery models for oncology, bone diseases, and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s Disease (a main priority). Our researchers are vigilantly developing target-specific drug delivery systems using biocompatible nanoparticle carbon dots (c-dots). Unlike chemotherapy, nano drug delivery systems based on c-dots potentially reduce the acute toxicity towards the healthy cells, while enhancing the drug efficacy with lower dosages.
C-Dots, LLC is a Florida Limited Liability Company organized in January 2017. The company is based upon the work of Professor Roger LeBlanc, PhD and was co-founded with Edward D. Miller, Chief Executive Officer.
