Researcher Identifies and Overcomes Key Development Hurdles

Project Description

Dr. Aditi Bhargava is working to develop a technology that can treat specific tissues in the body. She initially focused on treating chronic pain, with some success, but quickly realized through the help of her peers and expert Catalyst advisor, Dr. Alex Bajamonde, that her approach may be more applicable as a platform technology for other diseases with equally critical unmet needs. Through seed funds from the Catalyst Awards Program, she was able to obtain preliminary data to prove the concept, which in turn secured a research agreement with a strategic partner.  Sign up to receive updates on videos that highlight the work of Dr. Bhargava and other passionate researchers at UC San Francisco.
