NEW YORK, June 26 - Life sciences software firm 5AM Solutions has opened its doors in Phoenix to be near the Translational Genomics Research Institute, the firm and TGen said today.
5AM is headed up by Brent Gendleman (CEO) and Rob Daly (COO), who recently relocated to Phoenix from the Washington, DC area.
The firm is currently working on TGen's bioinformatics facility, as well as a data collection system for a national microarray consortium. Dietrick Stephan, director of the TGen Neurogenomics Division, is overseeing this national microarray consortium project, which is funded by NIMH and NINDS.
"Everyone who helped establish TGen hoped the institute would bring new businesses to Arizona. Now we see that expectation was accurate," said Richard Love, TGen's COO, in a statement.
