Cornell University Key Developments
Annapurna Therapeutics SAS Terminates Amended and Restated Master Services Agreement with Cornell University
Dec 9 16
On December 6, 2016, Adverum Biotechnologies Inc., the parent company of Annapurna Therapeutics SAS (Annapurna), delivered a notice to Cornell University to terminate the Amended and Restated Master Services Agreement, dated July 15, 2014, between Annapurna and Cornell (the MSA). Under the MSA, among other services, Cornell agreed to produce therapeutic materials for use in the Company's clinical studies of ADVM-043, the Company's product candidate for the treatment of alpha-1 antitrypsin (A1AT) deficiency. The company is exercising its right pursuant to Section 8.02(i) of the MSA to terminate the MSA for breach as a result of Cornell's failure to deliver therapeutic material suitable for use in human patients. The termination will be effective on January 6, 2017, unless Cornell cures its breaches of the MSA prior to that date.
Agriculture Victoria Services Pty Ltd, Boyce Thompson Institute, Cornell University and Agriculture Victoria Working Together on Essential African Root Crop
Nov 16 16
Dow AgroSciences and Agriculture Victoria, Australia, Cornell University and the Boyce Thompson Institute collaborated to develop Optimum Haploid Value™ (OHV) technology that can select the optimal parent varieties for plant breeding. This technology is being granted to BTI and Cornell University via a non-exclusive, royalty-free license for non-profit use to support cassava improvement. The OHV technology will be implemented in the Cassavabase database, maintained at BTI, as part of the NextGeneration Cassava Breeding (NextGen) project. NextGen is an international partnership that benefits the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) and the National Root Crops Research Institute (NRCRI) breeding centers in Nigeria, the National Crops Resources Research Institute (NaCRRI) in Uganda, and the Tanzania Agricultural Research Institute (TARI). The OHV technology is an extension of genomic selection, an approach that uses genetic information and physical characteristics from plant varieties to predict the most productive parental lines, thereby leading to accelerated crop improvement. OHV can shorten breeding cycles, provide accurate evaluation of plant performance at the seedling stage and give plant breeders the ability to evaluate a much larger number of plants without the need to grow them in the target environment. This approach requires fewer resources, making it more sustainable and more efficient. Using OHV and genomic selection, new releases of cassava could be available in nearly half the time.

Martha E. Pollack, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at the University of Michigan, will become the 14th president of Cornell University. The Cornell University Board of Trustees unanimously elected Martha E. Pollack, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at the University of Michigan, Cornell's 14th president. Pollack will assume the presidency April 17, 2017. The board's vote followed the selection of Pollack by a Presidential Search Committee that was formed in April 2016 following the death on March 6 of President Elizabeth Garrett. Hunter R. Rawlings III, who has served as Cornell's interim president since April 25, will remain in his current role through April 16, 2017. Pollack was appointed to her current position at the University of Michigan in 2013. As the university's chief academic officer and chief budget officer, she is responsible for the academic enterprise, which serves more than 43,000 students with over 16,000 faculty and staff, has annual operating revenues of $3.4 billion, and includes 19 schools and colleges, a number of freestanding research units, libraries and museums, and an array of academic support units. She also oversees the academic programs, ensuring that they maintain the level of quality and a persistent commitment to diversity and equity, and that the university's administrative functions are aligned with its academic mission. Prior to becoming provost, Pollack served the University of Michigan as vice provost for academic and budgetary affairs, dean of the School of Information, and associate chair for computer science and engineering in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. She has been on the faculty at Michigan since 2000. At Cornell, Pollack will have tenured appointments in the Departments of Computer Science and Information Science. She currently serves on the Steering Committee of the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute, the academic partnership between Cornell and the Technion Israel Institute of Technology at Cornell Tech.
