Patents

While strong research is the foundation of science, pharmaceutical companies depend upon strong patent portfolios to protect their investments in new compounds. TBP Pharma’s principal researcher, Dr. Laura Dugan, has been patenting new developments continually as her research has progressed. Her discoveries are protected, at a minimum, at least through 2022. As new developments in the research of our consultants and collaborators bear fruit, that protection will be extended.

The following patents of Dr. Laura Dugan are fully and exclusively licensed to The Bronx Project:
