Public Private Partnerships


Public Private Partnerships, can be mutually beneficial to academia and corporations.  While academia necessitates funding, corporations call for out-of-the-box thinking and intellectual curiosity.  By providing highly specialized collaborations, brain storming, scientific methods and tool development, The RNA Institute is able to leverage expertise and facilitate entrepreneurial endeavors.  Through entering a research agreement, in which both parties have a stake in IP generated and papers published, academia and corporations can work creatively on cutting edge research, enabling one another’s success. 

Read Director, Dr. Paul Agris’ article, Academic ingenuity and corporate partnerships: new models in human health ventures bring value to all.

If you are from a company interested in partnering with the RNA Institute please contact Jen Montimurro.
