Orlando-based company Hesperos was founded in 2015 and now is focused on creating the custom organ-on-a-chip systems, according to the specific research requirements. They raised a total $5.9M through multiple grants from National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS).
