Grants awarded to help bring promising bioscience discoveries to market
Date:7/18/2011

National Jewish Health researchers have been awarded more than $400,000 in grants to help develop promising bioscience discoveries into new products, services and businesses. The state of Colorado's Bioscience Discovery Evaluation Grant Program awarded grants for work on potential new therapies for pulmonary fibrosis, autoimmune disease, cancer and arthritis. Funds awarded by the state are matched by National Jewish Health.

The 2011 Proof-of-Concept grants awarded by Bioscience Discovery Evaluation Grant Program:

Joint Aspirate Facilitator Device
Investigator: Richard Meehan, MD.

Dr. Meehan has been awarded $38,900 to develop a prototype of a device designed to facilitate the aspiration and injection of joints. Primary care physicians, orthopedists and rheumatologists routinely draw fluid out of joints and inject medication into them to help them diagnose and treat arthritis and other diseases. They also frequently inject medicine into joints. Dr. Meehan's invention should make it easier to perform safe and less painful joint aspirations and injections. It consists of a flexible material that wraps around a joint. A bladder inside the material can be inflated to move fluid to an opening in the where fluid can be withdrawn or medication injected. Dr. Meehan was granted a U.S. Patent (#7,468,048) for his invention.

A Novel Compound For Pseudomonas Biofilm Disruption.
Investigator: Jerry Nick, MD.

Dr. Nick has been awarded $79,811 to synthesize and screen various molecules to find ones that can destroy molecular scaffolding that can make Pseudomonas bacterial infections extremely difficult to treat in cystic fibrosis patients, wearers of contact lenses, and burn victims. Dr. Nick has already shown this strategy can work and is now seeking unique molecules with superior stability and bioavailability. The proposed product will serve as an adjuvant to available antibiotics, to prevent or disrupt the Pseudomonas b
