A group of 20 early-stage life sciences startups in Washington each received $25,000 grants, part of an effort to fuel the “next generation” of life science innovation in the state. The awards, which total $500,000, aim to help drive advancements in medications, medical devices, and diagnostic testing. In addition to funding, grant awardees will receive technical assistance, according to a news release.

  • The grant program was facilitated through a partnership between the Life Science Washington Institute and Washington State Department of Commerce. It was funded through cash returned to the state’s Life Sciences Discovery Fund.
  • The awards prioritized startups outside King County, as well as those that are women-led or socially or economically disadvantaged across the state.
