NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Transplant Genomics today announced a deal to exclusively license patent rights from The Scripps Research Institute and Northwestern University.

The Brookline, Mass.-based company will have access to intellectual property related to kidney and liver transplant diagnostics, such as immune status monitoring and optimization, and it intends to use the licensed technology develop and commercialize tests based on genomic biomarkers of transplant graft status. The tests would be used as part of a surveillance program to detect early signs of graft injury.
