COLUMBUS — Ohio awarded $10 million in grants Thursday to six companies and a university that have come up with innovative scientific ideas to address the national opioid epidemic.
The Ohio Third Frontier Commission awarded the grants for ideas that include development of pain-management alternatives and a mobile app to improve addiction treatment.
The seven grant winners emerged from a field of 44 initial projects submitted by hospitals, universities, and various medical devices, software and pharmaceutical developers. About $2 million less was awarded than the commission had made available.
