Neurome Announces Partnership With ImClone Systems

NEW YORK, Sept. 24, (GenomeWeb News) - Neurome announced today that it has entered into a research agreement with ImClone Systems in which Neurome will apply its proprietary technologies and expertise in quantitative neuropathology to assist ImClone Systems in the discovery of preclinical candidate molecules.


Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.


"We believe ImClone Systems' decision to work with Neurome is an important validation of our discovery stage capabilities and proprietary technologies," said Floyd Bloom, chairman and founding CEO of Neurome.


In August, Neurome announced that it plans to buy all the assets owned by Digital Gene Technologies, including its gene-expression assays and gene-expression-analysis platform called TOGA (see story on Aug. 11).
