Port Hueneme, CA | Posted on December 15th, 2010
The grant is an extension to the company's SBIR grant: "Megathura Crenulata (giant keyhole limpet) Post Larval Culture - Bottleneck for a Valuable Medical Resource", and was based on the strong support provided by Bayer Innovation, co-development partner on this project.
John Sundsmo, Ph. D., Stellar's VP, Research & IP Management, commented, "This grant expands the scope of our 2009 $470,000 award to include critical research that will enhance Stellar's commercial partnerships. The research advances IP for Stellar, and puts us in excellent position for more significant grants to advance the commercial development of this important scientific work, while creating a sustainable supply of the sole KLH source, the keyhole limpet."
Stellar also announces an interview with CEO, Frank Oakes, and Executive VP, Darrell Brookstein: www.pinnacledigest.com/podcast/interview-stellar-biotechnologies-ceo-and-vp-big-pharma-interest-little-market-cap-company
