Axion BioSystems honored by SBA
Axion BioSystems, a GRA VentureLab company, was one of 18 small businesses nationwide to receive a 2012 Tibbetts Award from the Small Business Administration. The award honors small businesses for their success in driving innovation and creating new jobs and for the critical role they play in research and development for the government.
Axion BioSystems specializes in neural interfacing technologies with wide applicability to the research, clinical, and drug discovery markets. The company’s proprietary technology, initially developed at Georgia Tech, allows simultaneous stimulation and recording of neural tissue—an industry first—and includes low-power chips that service thousands of channels.
The Tibbetts Awards are presented to companies that participate in the Small Business Innovation Research program and are “beacons of promise and models of excellence in high technology.” See SBA Announcement>
