Ossium Awarded Phase I Grant from NIH

The National Institutes of Health notified Ossium that its proposal to demonstrate that the pool of viable, deceased donors for bone marrow transplants includes tissue donors — deceased donors who do not satisfy all of the health requirements of organ donors — is likely to be accepted. The NIH‘s decision to support Ossium’s research could eventually unlock substantial funding for a project that could dramatically expand the pool of viable deceased bone marrow donors, enabling thousands of additional patients to receive lifesaving stem cell transplants each year.
