Innovative Biochips, LLC Awarded Competitive Grant from the National Institutes of Health
We are pleased to announce that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded Innovative Biochips with Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant aimed at developing an automated yeast dissection system for aging research. The automated dissection platform overcomes current technical challenges in the tedious and low-throughput procedure of conventional microdissection method. This platform will provide unprecedented throughput and efficiency in conduction aging research using the yeast replicative aging model and enables researchers to take advantage of the powerful yeast genetics and apply high-throughput unbiased approaches to aging research.
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs, also known as America’s Seed Fund, are one of the largest sources of early-stage capital for technology commercialization in the United States. The purpose of these programs is to support small businesses with the most innovative, cutting-edge ideas that have the potential to become great commercial successes and make huge societal impacts.
