North Brunswick Township Council President Rajesh Mehta and Councilwomen Amanda Guadagnino and Mary Hutchinson were in attendance with New Jersey First Lady Tammy Murphy today for a grant award ceremony at the NJ Economic Development Authority’s New Jersey Bioscience Center (NJBC) – Step-Out Labs off Route 1.
The Commission on Science, Innovation and Technology (CSIT) Board awarded a combined $1.275 million in grants to 17 startups to accelerate the development of technologies, products, and services that support maternal and child wellbeing.
North Brunswick based Lactiga Inc. was one of the grant award recipients.
“New Jersey is home to some of the most innovative startups across a myriad of industries, and it is my honor to be here today to recognize some of the top startups in maternal and infant health,” said First Lady Tammy Murphy. “As we celebrate our sixth annual Maternal Health Awareness Day here in New Jersey, I reflect on the significant work we have accomplished and what has yet to come. In the next three years, a top priority is to build a thriving Maternal and Infant Health Innovation Center in Trenton that will continue this groundbreaking work long past the Murphy administration. I am certain that today’s grant recipients will be essential partners to the Center and to Nurture NJ.”
