TGen finalizes alliance with Van Andel Research Institute
Date:2/5/2010

PHOENIX, Ariz. Feb. 5, 2010 The Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) today announced the completion of a strategic alliance and affiliation agreement with the Van Andel Research Institute (VARI) that will maximize the research capabilities of both non-profit institutes.
