About


About
New Century Pharmaceuticals (NCP) is a biotechnology based pharmaceutical research and development company founded as a spinout from NASA Marshall Space Flight Center in 1997 with corporate offices in Huntsville, Alabama.  NCP has core expertise in structural molecular biology and nanomaterial engineering with an active program in microgravity science support services in partnership with Teledyne Brown.

Notable R&D:
  • Completion of a major structural survey of drug transport chemistry at atomic resolution for the purposes of designing improvements in the safety and efficacy of pharmaceuticals
  • Pioneering the development of self-assembling nanoparticles for diagnostic, therapeutic and vaccine applications. NCP self-assembling ferritin nanoparticles are currently transforming the approach to vaccine development
