CASIS Announces Series of New Research Awards in Areas of Earth Observation, Education, Physical and Life Sciences

Investigation: Comparative Real-Time Metabolic Activity Tracking for Improved Therapeutic Assessment Screening Panels

490 Biotech's reporter-gene system for substrate-free bioluminescent human cell lines is an enabling technology for the evaluation of drug safety and effectiveness. Cellular response to drug samples is observable via visible data acquisition in both tissues and small animal models. The microgravity environment on-board the ISS promotes superior 3D cell growth conditions, enabling evaluations (using this cell line) that may better mimic the cellular response of human tissues. This investigation will specifically examine anticancer therapeutics with downstream applications for other drugs with hopes to validate a novel bioluminescent assay tool kit that may significantly reduce the failure rate and high development cost of current drug discovery efforts.

Your OPPORTUNITY to upload into this extensively used SBIR-STTR Tracking system

  • Published articles about YOUR SBIR-involved firm
  • Press releases for pick-up by other sources
  • Professional papers; White papers; relevant Business materials

It is a rare issue of the major Business Press - WSJ; New York Times; Washington Post - and regional equivalents; magazines of similar importance - The Economist, Fortune, Forbes etc - and now a wealth of electronic communications and daily news feeds that does not include reference to, or articles about, one/more SBIR-STTR Awardees. With the focus usually on what the firm is about - their technical achievement or business emphasis - it is an unusual coverage that even mentions their SBIR involvement. An integral part of the extensive range of data we continuously assembled in our system on all SBIR-STTR involved firms includes this type of press coverage.  Much that we gather includes firms no longer SBIR involved or still in business, nor now eligible. ...more
