Stony Brook University Enters into Licensing Deal to Bring Anti-Cancer Technology to Market
Jun 15 15
Stony Brook University has entered into a licensing agreement with a CadheRx Therapeutics, to develop and market an anti-cancer technology discovered by Sabine Brouxhon, MD, Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicineat Stony Brook University School of Medicine. The technology involves use
of an antibody-based cancer therapy that down-regulates a plethora of pathways associated with resistant disease. The approach could advance treatment for patients with many forms of cancer, including breast, colorectal, lung, skin, and other epithelial-derived cancers. The agreement involves CadheRx Therapeutics in-licensing the intellectual property developed from the laboratory of Dr. Brouxhon. CadheRx will develop therapeutic antibodies targeting soluble E-cadherin for the treatment of solid tumors that display resistance, particularly to the commonly used drugs Herceptin and Cetuximab. Importantly, soluble E-cadherin levels are increased in the milieu of many solid tumors and contributes to enhanced tumor cell proliferation, migration, and invasion, which is linked to metastatic disease.
Graphene Energy Storage Devices Corp. Executes Joint Research and Development Agreement with Stony Brook University
Feb 23 15
Lomiko Metals Inc. announced Graphene Energy Storage Devices Corp. has signed a research agreement with the Research Foundation of Stony Brook University. Graphene ESD Corp. will partner with the SBU Center for Advanced Sensor Technologies (Sensor CAT) to develop new super capacitors designs for energy storage. Lomiko Metals Inc. is currently owns a 40% stake in Graphene ESD and Mr. A. Paul Gill, CEO of Lomiko, is now appointed a Director of Graphene ESD. Super capacitors bridge the gap between conventional capacitors and rechargeable batteries. They traditionally find application as intermediate energy sources in recuperative braking, voltage filtering, and more. However, the maximum voltage of an individual super capacitor unit is limited to a few volts. A higher-voltage device can be assembled by connecting individual units, but this is a labor-intensive and expensive process. The goal of the project is the development of low-cost integrated ultra-high voltage super capacitor units by a high-rate reel-to-reel process. The target applications are grid-tied inverters, grid-stabilization systems, as well as automotive and locomotive drive trains. SBU will leverage its experience in electrochemistry and will be responsible for the design of the electrode and the electrolyte formulation. The Graphene ESD team will work on device assembly and testing.
