Cube proposed by: Kathleen Stringer

Unit: Pharmacy

About this project: 
Clofazimine is an anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory and redox active antibiotic. Clofazimine is the most potent, cell type-specific, subcellular-targeting compound known. This project proposes to employ the immune system and drugs known to accumulate in immune cells to develop new and innovative therapies for lung diseases.
