Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) and the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) announced grant awards for two Massachusetts-based life science companies, totaling $500,000 in funding as part of the Galactic Grant Competition. The winners were announced at the 2015 ISS R&D Conference, taking place this year in Boston. The winning companies are Nanobiosym, Inc. and Zaiput Flow Technologies, both located in Cambridge. The grant funding will allow Zaiput and Nanobiosym to leverage up to $7.4 million per project of support from CASIS to fly their projects up to station, conduct their projects on station, and bring the experiments back to earth.
