St. Paul, Minn, (11.28.2016) - MD Biosciences announces its moves to new, expanded facilities in the United States and Israel. The larger research facilities will enable MD Biosciences to accommodate its growing clinical and preclinical services, its collaborative research and development activities, plus its growing drug development programs.

The new, purpose-built facilities feature state-of-the-art in vivo and in vitro laboratories, including larger space resources for CLIA proteomic and genomic analyses, and clinical flow cytometry work. The MD Biosciences histology and pathology laboratories have also been expanded to provide more complex GLP capabilities in the CNS, skin, immune-oncology and inflammatory therapeutic areas. To further accommodate specific project requirements - the new facilities also feature extensive Class 100 cleanrooms. 

As part of the new US facility, MD Biosciences will serve as the core anchor for Incubology, Inc., the new science park and incubator facility located in Oakdale, just east of Saint Paul, Minnesota. Incubology will host start-up and established companies from the pharma, medtech, chemistry and healthcare data sectors.

October 14, 2016, Weizmann Science Park, Nes Ziona, Israel - MD Biosciences announced today its agreement for the exclusive license rights of all intellectual property assets of Bio-Marcare Technologies, Ltd. that relate to methods for circulating, DNA-based identification of pre-cancerous colorectal polyps and colorectal cancer. This agreement has been reached with Hadasit Medical Research Services and Development Ltd. of the Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem, Israel.

MD Biosciences clinical scientists will be developing the methods towards commercialization at its CLIA clinical laboratories. “We are very excited to move forward with the development of the technology to provide a sensitive and cost-effective method for identifying and monitoring individuals at high risk of colorectal cancer, said Eddie Moradian, Chief Executive Officer of MD Biosciences. “A large percentage of individuals do not readily comply with current colon cancer screening methods and they would readily benefit from our blood-based tests.” 

Development work will be carried out at MD Biosciences Innovalora in Israel in conjunction with the MD Biosciences CLIA Clinical Diagnostics Laboratories in Saint Paul, MN.

Accelerating Academic Life Science Technology Discoveries

Posted by MD Biosciences on Jun 24, 2016 1:07:35 PM

St. Paul, Minn., June 24, 2016 - MD Biosciences launches the InnovX®lab_student.jpgresearch platform that’s designed to bridge the gap between preliminary, early stage and industry relevant life science product research discoveries by academic institute researchers, as well as de-risk necessary research investments.

InnovX® Platform Research in the focus areas of pharmaceuticals, medical devices and related biotechnologies are eligible for selection into the MD Biosciences development InnovX® Platform program. Once academic institutional researchers seeking sponsorship are accepted into the MD Biosciences program, they enter into a full partnership agreement. The partnership includes access to a large library of resources, business and technology management expertise, and a vast network of industry contacts to help accelerate innovative life science technology developments.

InnovX® - Novel Partner-based Platform

According to Eddie Moradian, Chief Executive Officer, at MD Biosciences, “The InnovX® Platform is a novel partner-based approach to selecting and advancing promising technologies to a developmental stage that’s ripe for consideration by pharmaceutical and industrial partners. MD Biosciences will invest into the developmental phase from which traditional VC’s shy away from, namely the so-called Valley of Death.” He further added, “ We believe this investment strategy will bring significant value to all parties involved and will help to bring important technologies to light which may otherwise languish due to the lack of strategic investment and funding.”

Expediting the Commercialization Process

The InnovX® Platform expedites the commercialization process of university developed assets by integrating development and entrepreneurship in multiple internal parallel projects. With our focused and lean approach, MD Biosciences will continue to invest in necessary research that will advance a technology for out-licensing, partnership or start-up formation.

The InnovX® Platform is currently in advanced discussions with a number of high-ranking academic institutions in the US and other countries.
