Boston Micromachines Corp.
Boston Micromachines Corp. of Cambridge, Mass., has been awarded a $750,000 Phase II Small Business Innovation Research grant from the National Eye Institute of the NIH. The grant will fund a collaboration between the company and Indiana University Bloomington, as they develop an instrument that will provide sufficient wavefront correction to enable high-resolution retinal imaging of 95% of the population. The partners believe that the device will provide significant advances in the research and diagnosis of eye diseases in the elderly.
