Congratulations to Amplified Sciences on being accepted into the National Institutes of Health’s Applicant Assistance Program for Small Businesses, or NIH AAP.
Over a 10-week period, Amplified Sciences’ leaders will receive customized assistance in preparing to submit a proposal for SBIR/STTR grants from the National Cancer Institute in September.
Amplified Sciences CEO Diana Caldwell explained how participating in the program will benefit the company.
“Being selected to join the program is a prestigious honor, as its leadership is selective about whom they invite,” Caldwell said. “The insights that we receive from the customized assistance could directly impact whether we receive grants from the National Cancer Institute. Those grants could help us further advance our innovations and prepare them for the marketplace.”
IU Ventures invested $125,000 in the recent Series Seed funding round for Amplified Sciences. The company’s lead assay in development helps clinicians test for pancreatic cancer and better treat patients with pancreatic cysts. Co-founders Caldwell and Vincent Jo Davisson are IU alumni.
