Our Expertise


Dry Eye Disease is a challenging disease of the ocular surface that causes eye pain, inflammation, and difficulty dealing with daily tasks.

ST Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a slow acting disease, and damage is irreversible. Proper diagnosis and intervention is critical.

Stuart Therapeutics Dry AMD

Imagine you are looking at a clock with hands. With Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration (Dry AMD), you might see the clock’s numbers, but not the hands.


Stuart Therapeutics

Stuart Therapeutics (Stuart) is a clinical stage pharmaceutical company focused on the development of a unique synthetic protein designed to target a previously undruggable target in the human body: helical collagen. The company’s platform technology, called PolyColTM (PolyCol), is a series of synthesized amino acid sequences designed to specifically bind to and repair disease-damaged helical collagen in the extracellular matrix and in membranes.  These helical collagen structures play an important role in healthy tissues, including the regulation of inflammation, cell growth and proliferation, among many other processes.


Stuart was founded in 2018 to champion a new approach to the treatment of chronic diseases.  Each of our founders has been affected directly or indirectly by chronic eye disease, and we have a passion for the pursuit of new and effective solutions for these indications.

Stuart’s areas of interest are Dry Eye Disease, Glaucoma, Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Myopia.”


Dedicated to Preserving Your Future

Chronic eye diseases threaten visual function, and ultimately, sight itself. This loss impacts our ability to enjoy the activities and images that create our “futures.” Stuart Therapeutics exists to preserve those futures.

Extracellular Matrix

The ECM is a three-dimensional network consisting of macromolecules including collagen, the most abundant protein in the human body.

Collagen in the Eye

Collagen plays both a structural and cell signaling role in the human eye. Collagen signaling controls cell growth, proliferation and inflammation.

Helical Collagen

A major form of collagen is the triple helix, formed by three complex amino acid chains bound together by electrochemical forces.


Collagenases are enzymes that break the peptide bonds in collagen. They are  involved in degrading and remodeling extracellular structures.


I greatly appreciate the communication on the process, what we needed to do in terms of providing samples, what to expect. Novalab provided what we needed in terms of certification that we can use with our customers.
