Date:1/5/2009

ease research," McNary said.

According to Dr. Weitz, the grant will allow his lab to work with RainDance Technologies to develop a new form of fluorescence assisted cell sorter (FACS). "This research is an important continuation of the droplet-based microfluidics technology that was pioneered at Harvard University and is now being commercialized by RainDance," Dr. Weitz said.

McNary noted that the project will "further advance the growth of droplet biology and the positioning of RainDance and Harvard as one of the world's innovation centers for this important technology -- as well as bolster the goals of the State's Life Sciences Initiative and further position Massachusetts as a biotech industry leader."

McNary commended the MLSC and reiterated his praise for the State's $1 Billion Life Sciences Initiative "as the stimulus for RainDance's decision to relocate to Lexington, Mass., from out of state this May."

Dr. Weitz called the grant "an excellent example of a partnership between the state government, local industry and academia to combine basic research with commercial development that brings economic value and jobs to the state, while benefiting society by providing important new technologies for health care. I am grateful to the State of Massachusetts and to the MLSC for their support."

"The Cooperative Research Grant Program builds on the Center's strategy of using public investments to leverage private sector resources as we pursue our dual mission of job creation, and support for good science that will improve the human condition," said Dr. Susan Windham Bannister, President & CEO of the MLSC. "We were thrilled that RainDance Technologies cited the Life Sciences Act as one of their reasons for moving to Massachusetts, and we are pleased to support this worthy collaborative research project, which holds promise for both job creation and imp
