Student startup Asclepii Inc. receives research grant

Asclepii Inc., a company founded by Case Western Reserve University biomedical engineering student Franco Kraiselburd, was recently awarded a $450,000 non-dilutive translational research grant.

The grant funding is to push Asclepii Inc.’s product Artemis, a platform designed to foster the next generation of wound care products. Out of over 22 projects that applied for the “Translational Research” Modality, only three were selected as this year’s winners.

Competing with some of Mexico’s best researchers, this makes Ixchel Robles Ruiz (Asclepii’s chief operating officer) and Franco Kraiselburd (Asclepii’s CEO and founder) two of the youngest researchers in the history of Mexico to be awarded such an important accomplishment. 

The Tecnológico de Monterrey Institute is the No. 1 private university in Mexico, and a top 5 University in Latin America.
