Bayer expands MIT genome collaboration

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

Bayer and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard are hoping to create new cardiovascular treatments and diagnostics by expanding their collaboration in genomic research, which is currently focused on oncology. The collaboration combines Bayer's expertise in cardiology and the institute's genomics and biology knowhow. The two organizations will focus on genetic discovery, target validation, and drug discovery. A joint steering committee will oversee the collaboration and a joint research committee will supervise research progress and direction. Financial terms of the agreement have not been disclosed. Cardiovascular genomics is an emerging field of cardiology that uses genomic information to characterize disease risk and identify new therapeutic targets for drug discovery. Back in 2013 Bayer and the institute struck a five-year collaboration in oncogenomics and drug discovery.
