Date:6/21/2013

LEXINGTON, Ky., June 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Transposagen Biopharmaceuticals, Inc., based in Lexington, KY, has announced today that it is the recipient of over $2,975,426 in additional Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) funding; $1,975,426 from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and $1,000,000 from the KY Cabinet for Economic Development (CED). Transposagen's project titled: Creation of Hyperactive Transposons for Mutagenesis in Rodents will further develop Transposagen's piggyback(TM) DNA Modification System. The piggyBac(TM) technology and other Transposagen technologies, such as site-specific nucleases called XTN(TM) TALENs, are genome modification tools used for the creation of custom cell lines and rat and mouse models.

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
