Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Israeli Chief Scientist Avi Hasson have announced that $1.3 million in grants will go toward four research and development collaborations between Massachusetts and Israeli companies, reported the Boston Herald.

This funding is the first round of grants awarded under the Massachusetts-Israel Innovation Partnership, which encourages entrepreneurial collaboration between Massachusetts’ and Israel’s life sciences, clean energy and technology sectors.

Four project collaborations between Massachusetts and Israeli companies will benefit from the funding and will work to develop a variety of new technologies, including a 3-D imaging capsule that screens for colorectal cancer lesions and a new method of separating fuel from oil-creating algae.
