This year’s picks:
GreenSpense– Convenient as they are, aerosol cans are hazardous to the environment because they rely on volatile organic compounds to propel a product from the canister. VOCs contribute to air pollution and are a factor in climate change. Aerosols are also expensive to produce, often dangerous to ship and store, and put a crimp in creative packaging options. The GreenSpense eco-sleeve is a smarter, cheaper, eco-friendly solution.
p53-Therapeutics – The p53 gene is known as the guardian of the genome. It’s one of the body’s critical damage-control genes, repairing cells when possible, telling them to self-destruct when things are beyond repair. When something goes wrong here, cancer cells can grow at will. p53-Therapeutics is developing customized chemotherapies to restore the enforcer function of the p53 gene.
“These highly creative companies have been selected by the 700 for Science member network, a bottom-up support system for innovative projects and technologies,” said Wylie. “We want to draw attention to their efforts in hopes of helping them reach their next critical milestones.”
