Title: Crosslinked protein nanocrystals, crosslinked protein nanoaggregates and method of preparation thereof

Abstract: This invention relates to crosslinked protein nanoparticles and a method for producing the same. The method comprises the preparation and nanonization (i.e., size reduction to the nanoscale) of protein nanoparticle precursor materials--i.e., crosslinked proteins of the micron or greater size--via mechanical or hydrodynamic shear, mechanical crushing, sonic cavitation and/or hydrodynamic cavitation.
