Congratulations to RAMP 2022 cohort alumna Dr. Alexandra Hyler, vice-president and Chief Science Officer of CytoRecovery, Inc., which has received a $952,558 award from the National Science Foundation!

CytoRecovery’s NSF Phase II Small Business Innovation Grant is just the latest success for a RAMP entrepreneur. We are accepting applications through Feb. 12 for our Spring 2023 cohort focusing on technology, health and life science startups: http://ramprb.tech.

CytoRecovery is bringing to market advanced microfluidic technology to enable cell biologists and other life science researchers to rapidly sort, enrich, and recover rare, homogeneous, viable cell subpopulations from tissue, blood and other biological samples.

Great work, Alex!
