March 7, 2014


County officials said Thursday that a county firm will be among state companies sharing in nearly $1.5 million in awards for life sciences innovation through the BioMaryland Center, an office within Maryland’s Department of Business and Economic Development.


Vasoptic Medical Inc., a Columbia-based member of the Maryland Center for Entrepreneurship in Howard County, is among the seven firms receiving up to $200,000 each to accelerate the commercialization of treatments and technologies.


Vasoptic is being supported for its low-cost retinal imaging instrument, developed for the early diagnosis of diabetic retinopathy, which affects many people with diabetes. M. Jason Brooke, Vasoptic Medical Inc. CEO and co-founder, said the funding will help advance a prototype and get it to clinical study.
