Molecular Probes receives
grant for cancer research
Molecular Probes, the world's leading supplier of fluorescent dyes for biomedical research, has received a $140,000 grant for cancer research.
The company, which has 240 employees at its Eugene headquarters, won a Small Business Innovative Research grant from the National Cancer Institute.
The grant will fund research in collaboration with Dr. Satyabrata Nandi at the University of California, Berkeley, examining the reduced risk of breast cancer following full-term pregnancy in early adulthood.
The grant program was established in 1982 to promote research and development at companies with less than 500 employees. It is the 10th SBIR award received by Molecular Probes.
