Agathos Biologics Receives $900,000 from the North Dakota Bioscience Innovation Grant Program


Agathos Biologics, a biotechnology company developing transformational science within a strong ethical and moral framework, today announced the company has been awarded $900,000 from the North Dakota Department of Agriculture Bioscience Innovation Grant (BIG) Program. Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring announced that nine grants have been awarded totaling $4.9 million to foster the growth of the bioscience industry in North Dakota. "Advances in bioscience have already transformed many sectors including agriculture and medicine," Goehring said. "These grants will help North Dakota stay on the forefront of bioscience innovation."

Agathos Biologics' project funded by ND BIG will focus on challenges that limit patient access to advanced genetic medicines that can significantly impact quality of life?cost, availability, and ethical concerns. Company scientists will create new materials and methods for research and biomanufacturing and use them for drug development, which will address unmet medical needs and increase the availability of genetic medicines to more patients. The company will make these products and services available to the broader biotechnology industry through direct sales and licensing, partnerships, and collaborations.

"We are honored to receive this support from the State of North Dakota and thank the Commissioner and the Committee for their work on behalf of the citizens of the state," said James Brown, Chief Executive Officer of Agathos Biologics. "We founded the company in North Dakota because its business-friendly environment, skilled workforce, and growing biotechnology ecosystem make it an ideal place to expand the company and achieve our goal to develop genetic medicine products and services that positively impact human health and are ethically acceptable to all."
