5 november, 2012

Göteborg BIO´s recent BIO-XTM call for proposals ”Meeting the needs in the area of Cardiovascular and Metabolic diseases” generated totally 14 project proposals from leading research teams. All proposals address needs for new innovative tools and methods for prevention, diagnosis or treatment.

After the first evaluation process, 7 projects have been selected for matchmaking and support in the next stage of the BIO-X programme. – We are now looking for industrial and clinical partners with an interest in the technologies, applications and further development of the projects, says Göran Leonardsson, project manager for BIO-X.

BIO-XTM is a structured way to team up with leading academic teams to develop proofs of concept, proofs of mechanisms or proof of hypothesis for new life science products.

In the Region Västra Götaland BIO-X is enabled by a close collaboration with Uppsala BIO, who has developed the process. Selected project in the final stages will receive support for up to two years and will be presented before the end of the year.
