A Sioux Center biomedical research company has been awarded $300,000 from the Iowa Economic Development Authority.

Exemplar Genetics is one of five existing Iowa companies chosen to receive funds in support of job creation and expansion projects.

Exemplar develops new models that allow researchers to study human diseases the aim of which is to enable discovery of better understanding, treatments, therapies and cures.

This is done through a patented process that implements pigs as models. Company officials say that animal welfare is always a top priority for all members at the company.
