Joslin Diabetes Center, Inc. Key Developments

MedImmune and Joslin Diabetes Center Announce New Research Collaboration Focused on Advancing Metabolic Disease Research

MedImmune and Joslin Diabetes Center announced a three-year research collaboration to develop new medicines for the treatment of diabetes, obesity, and related metabolic disorders. MedImmune and Joslin researchers will work collaboratively on research projects to identify new drug candidates. Three initial projects have been identified, focusing on several key areas including protecting and regenerating the insulin producing beta cells, increasing the caloric utilization of fat depots ('beiging' white fat or expanding brown fat), and replicating the beneficial effects of bariatric surgery pharmacologically. The collaboration is structured with the potential for more projects to be added as new compelling science is identified. Under the terms of the agreement, MedImmune will provide research funding to Joslin and bring drug development expertise and capabilities to complement Joslin's early metabolic disease research competencies and clinical care infrastructure. MedImmune has the option to license development and commercial rights to projects emerging from the collaboration.

EKF Diagnostics Enters into Multi-Year, Collaborative Relationship with Joslin Diabetes Center in Support of the Ongoing Clinical and Commercial Translation

EKF Diagnostics has entered a multi-year, collaborative relationship with Joslin Diabetes Center in support of the ongoing clinical and commercial translation of TNFR1 & 2 biomarkers. These novel biomarkers can help identify patients with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes that are at an increased risk of developing end stage renal disease (ESRD), up to ten years in advance. The new agreement between Joslin, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, and EKF is part of Joslin's Corporate Liaison Program (CLP). This program seeks to accelerate development, validation and market introduction of unique products and solutions that advance treatments and care for diabetes and its complications. As globally recognized leaders in the field of diabetes research, Joslin has created the CLP in order to foster industry partnerships within the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, food and device industries. The role of the CLP is to help engage corporate partners, such as EKF, with Joslin's capabilities in advisory services, clinical expertise, and research infrastructure. This enables Joslin to work closely with an industry partner to customize its offerings towards a defined product program or a range of corporate priorities within diabetes management.
