New Century Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

NCP is a Huntsville biopharmaceutical research company which spun out from NASA, Marshall Space Flight Center in 1996.  The company’s primary focus has been on the atomic structure and chemistry of human albumin, the major protein of the blood.  According to Dr. Carter, “albumin is an important protein with many functions, but from our original interest, it represents Mother Nature’s drug delivery system."  New Century has applied this information to improve the safety and performance of pharmaceuticals, with an emphasis on anticancer drugs.  In an effort to preserve its principal technology base during a critical financial period, New Century spun off two technology platforms to two start-up companies; one to f-star in 2006, and more recently, Albumin Therapeutics/Bioscience (Huntsville) in 2009.
