To date, BIRD's total investment in these projects has exceeded $290 million, helping to generate direct and indirect sales of more than $8 billion.

The approved projects are as follows:

  • ART Healthcare and Hydrofera (Willimantic, CT) will develop a device to reduce infections in intensive care units.
  • BioMarCare Technologies and Ariadne (Rockville, MD) will develop a companion diagnostic test for metastatic colorectal cancer.
  • Evogene and Pioneer Hi-Bred International (Johnston, IA) will develop soybean varieties tolerant to foliar diseases.
  • Healarium and The Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN) will develop an application for self monitoring of cardiovascular risk.
  • Human Monitoring and Access Systems America (Sunnyvale, CA) will develop a social e-publishing ecosystem for interactive content.
