Chrysalis BioTherapeutics, a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company based in Galveston, is positioned to revolutionize lives worldwide.

Chrysalis recently received $10.4 million from the federal BioMedical Advanced Research and Development Authority to continue developing TP508, a drug that remedies the effects of radiation exposure. The drug could serve as a countermeasure to people exposed to radiation through medical treatment, nuclear accidents or any other way.
