Connecticut Bioscience Companies and Projects
To provide specific examples of active projects or research being done in Connecticut.
There are a number of Bioscience projects and companies active in Connecticut. Some are startups and projects being developed into companies, while others are larger, more established life sciences and healthcare companies.
- KovaDx: They are building an image analysis platform for the diagnosis of blood diseases based on deep learning technology.
- RBK Biotech: Their product doesn't seem to be built out much, but they're focused on nutrition for cancer care.
- Lactation Innovations: They are "dedicated to developing technologies that help mothers breastfeed with confidence". Their first product for this mission is the Manoula Device, which monitors how much breastmilk a baby has consumed and communicates the data wirelessly with the mother and healthcare providers.
- OnTrack Rehabilitation: Accelerated concussion recovery, safely and efficiently, driven by measurements of the patient's balance as well as ocular and vestibular improvement, all managed through a cloud-based analytic platform.
- QCDx: A "medical device company that designs, manufactures, and sells instruments, consumables and reagents for the detection of rare cells in the blood circulation" that improves early detection of tumor cells and drives curing cancer.
- Vanessa Research: They are "driven by the desire to save children’s lives, develop the first treatment for MVID, and to give patients the chance to live a healthy life".
- Enrich Therapeutics: They develop "novel single cell isolation technology to enhance global life science research at true single cell level".
- Skeletal Phenotyping IMPC/KOMP Mice
- EliV5: They are developing new anti-fungal drugs to disrupt the pathways of fungal survival.
- DeMay Bio: Their goal is to "develop a new treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis that leverages the body’s own natural defense mechanisms to block disease signs in the joints that cause pain and mobility loss for patients".

Proposed next steps:
You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
One approach is to look deeper into the projects on this list and see where they're getting funding and also learn about the progress they're making towards their goals.
Alternatively, we can take a broader look at the research and projects happening in CT and how they relate to more established Bioscience companies in the state. For example, a look at how funding is flowing from larger organizations into small projects and startups, and how this is strengthening the overall ecosystem.
