Rochester MN Mill Creek Life Sciences announces receipt of a grant during the inaugural round of funding from Regenerative Medicine Minnesota. Regenerative Medicine Minnesota is a state funded initiative that received 4.35 million dollars in 2015 to stimulate innovation and business related to the growing field of regenerative medicine in the state of Minnesota. The grants are reviewed and administered in a collaboration of the Stem Cell Institute at the University of Minnesota and the Head of Mayo Clinics’ Center of Regenerative Medicine. Mill Creek received a Biotechnology/Biobusiness development grant of $95,600 in this first round of funding. Mill Creek will use the proceeds of the grant to purchase equipment and supplies to support their product testing and product development. “We would like to thank the legislature for their foresight in establishing the availability of these monies, said Al Dietz, CEO of Mill Creek, “This is a rapidly growing field with the potential to significantly impact the economy of Minnesota. Grants to accelerate technology and product development such as these help Mill Creek maintain its competitive edge and this investment will have rapid return both for us and for the state.”
