"Too often, great ideas are shelved with no clear path to the marketplace when grants run out or new projects are started, when they could improve people's lives. The Emerging Technology Fund is our solution to that problem," Gov. Perry said. "The ETF is super-charging the research environment in our state, harnessing our people's amazing ideas, and encouraging even greater efforts to inquire, innovate and invest."

Established by Gov. Perry and the Texas Legislature in 2005, the ETF is bringing the best scientists and researchers to Texas, attracting high-paying jobs, and helping start-up companies get off the ground faster. The ETF program has been renewed to fund awards through August 2011.

"In spite of these uncertain economic times, it is exciting to see more companies from the Houston region commercializing breakthrough technology, solving real human problems, creating good jobs and building the region's and the state's reputation as a 21st century technology hub," said Walter Ulrich, president and CEO, Houston Technology Center.

"We are extremely appreciative of this vote of confidence by the Governor and the State of Texas and look forward to commercializing a product that will have a positive impact on the health and well-being of the people of Texas," commented Dr. Robert Schucker, CEO of SeprOx.
