March 31, 2013

Greenville-based Kiyatec and the University of Southern California are collaborating on research of cellular responses through a $30,000 grant.

The U.S. National Academy of Engineering recently awarded Matthew Gevaert of Kiyatec and Andrea Armani of the University of Southern California a Grainger Foundation Frontiers of Engineering Grant.

“This grant is the first step in this exciting collaboration,” Gevaert, Kiyatec’s CEO and co-founder, said in an email. “We’re hoping that the data we’ll produce will lead to further funding to support this line of research, which lines up with our quest to create ever smarter, ever better cell culture systems useful for (among other things) more accurate prediction of a drug’s effect on people.”
