Biological Industries USA's MSC Research Award

Biological Industries USA's MSC Research Award is intended to help scientists achieve their MSC research objectives. Our aim is to provide a culture of excellence through our scientific consultation and xeno-free, serum-free media products and protocols that support the maintenance and propagation of undifferentiated and differentiated cells. The BI-USA MSC Research Award provides the winning scientists with our MSC cell culture reagents and technical consultation for up to 6 months, as well as a travel award to attend one scientific conference to report findings. This ongoing program includes awards for stem cell research, totaling $65,000 annually in BI and BI-USA research reagents. This program is currently available to US only.
