TATVA BIOSCIENCES*
Tatva Biosciences was established with a goal to develop novel tools, reagents and products to facilitate basic and translational research that would ultimately lead to better human health. One of the primary technologies developed by the cofounders relates to the formulation of sun protection cream containing silver nanoparticles as active ingredients. Harmful solar radiations (UVB) are considered one major cause of skin carcinogenesis in developed countries, including the United States. Silver nanoparticles are capable of blocking as well as repairing the DNA damage caused by UVB radiations through their physical and bioactive properties in a superior and safer way than some most common active ingredients of current sunscreens. Alongside, Tatva Biosciences, funded through phase 1 SBIR funding from National Cancer Institute, is also developing cell lines from cancer patients of diverse racial background to facilitate basic research investigating underlying biological and molecular causes of cancer health disparities.
