Mirus Launches Award Program Offering Transfection Products


Mirus Bio this week announced that it has launched an awards program to provide certain of its products to research teams that aim to use the company's transfection products in scientific investigations.

The program will run through 2012 and provide eligible labs with $5,000, $3,000, or $2,000 worth of Mirus products, as well as technical support. Winners will be chosen based on the quality of the research submitted to the company, the research area, and the proposed novel use of Mirus products.

The company said that labs receiving the awards that publish or present scientific findings referencing Mirus will be eligible for additional awards for a second year.
