Aegis Biosciences Receives Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Grant
Aegis Biosciences LLC, a Spokane Intercollegiate Research and Technology Institute (SIRTI) incubator tenant, was awarded a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.

The $197,000 grant will help Aegis develop its technology to more effectively treat chronic wounds. Chronic wounds, such as pressure sores, are those which resist healing and are often found in diabetics and people suffering from leg ulcers. In large part, the new grant will allow Aegis to conduct pre-clinical trials of its new protein-based copolymer. Aegis has developed the copolymer as a wound-dressing product that will more effectively preserve tissue cells and accelerate healing. Once developed, the copolymer may prove to play an important role in all medical fields, especially those that deal with wound and tissue repair.

Aegis Biosciences is a developer of biomaterial drug delivery and wound healing technologies. The company recently moved its R&D activities from the Greater Los Angeles area to the SIRTI building in Spokane. Aegis’ decision to make the move to Spokane and lease wet lab space from SIRTI was facilitated through a joint effort between the Spokane Area Economic Development Council, Connect Northwest, and SIRTI.
