Detroit R&D Secures $1.2 Million in SBIR Grants

NEW YORK, Nov. 10 (GenomeWeb News) - Detroit R&D said today that it has received $1.2 million in new phase I and phase II SBIR grants, which will support the company's continued genomic and proteomic research into xenobiotic and toxic substances metabolism.


The first phase I grant will provide $100,000 to support of the development of antibody chips to screen drug-metabolizing enzymes, said Detroit R&D. The second phase I grant is for $400,000, and will be used to find markers for fetal alcohol syndrome.


Detroit R&D said that the phase II grant, worth $750,000, was awarded to help in the development of frog embryo DNA microarrays as a tool for toxicogenomic studies.
