The NIH performs comprehensive external peer review using experts from academia and industry to assess the scientific merit, technical merit, and commercial application of the proposed technology. The following was stated in the NIH's Project Summary Statement, "Transposon mediated mutagenesis has the potential to generate knockout embryonic stem cells and rats for a large number of genes. These are likely to become powerful tools in the researchers' toolkit. Impact on a broad spectrum of research areas is likely to be huge and sustained."

"This most recent award from the NIH and the CED further validates the importance of Transposagen's core technologies," said Dr. Eric Ostertag, CEO of Transposagen Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. "The focus of this grant is the creation of genetically modified rat
