Forsyth Institute receives $4.1 million grant for new center
Date:3/19/2013

CSD will be the home to cutting-edge diagnostic therapies; converting blood-based disease detection to saliva-based assays that would make the tests less expensive and much more convenient. Such assays would be better-suited to use in doctors' offices and in developing countries. Forsyth plans to work with multiple research partners and include targeted workforce training for biotechnology personnel in its quest to find disease biomarkers in saliva, including metabolic syndrome/pre-diabetes syndrome, Tuberculosis, stroke and more.

"A key strategy of the Life Sciences Center is to use our capital dollars to support the creation of resources that are uniquely available in Massachusetts," said Dr. Susan Windham-Bannister, President & CEO of the MLSC. "Forsyth's Center for Salivary Diagnostics is an example. This center will conduct novel research that has the potential to revolutionize medical diagnostics. Investments in cutting-edge facilities like this are helping Massachusetts innovate how life sciences innovation is taking place!"

Also in attendance to celebrate the announcement were Congressman Mike Capuano, State Senator Sal DiDomenico, State Representative Timothy Toomey and Cambridge City Councilors Minka Van Beuzekom and Leland Cheung.

"The Forsyth Institute has long been a leader in oral health initiatives. Its new Salivary Diagnostics Center will undertake research that could improve our overall health and make certain diseases easier to detect, earlier and by non-invasive methods," said Capuano. "I thank the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center for helping provide the financial resources that the Forsyth Institute needs to advance this important research."

"I'm happy to see Forsyth expand into Cambridge, and I'm equally happy that their expansion is in partnership with the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center, the Patrick/Murray Administration and the City of Cambridge," said DiDomenico. "This expansion further proves the city's c
