Annapurna Therapeutics SAS Terminates Amended and Restated Master Services Agreement with Cornell University

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

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.
