Trial of HIV test for babies in Africa could make a big difference
Date:10/26/2012

Kelso and Palamountain established the foundation with four other Northwestern University colleagues: Daniel Diermeier, the IBM Professor of Regulation and Competitive Practice at Kellogg; Alicia Loffler, associate vice president and executive director of the Innovation and New Ventures Office; Matthew Glucksberg, professor of biomedical engineering at McCormick; and Robert L. Murphy, M.D., the John Philip Phair Professor of Infectious Diseases at the Feinberg School of Medicine, director of the Center for Global Health and a physician at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Kelso's research and the spinoff foundation directly connect to Northwestern's own strategic plan goals of actively engaging with the world and discovering creative solutions to problems that will improve lives, communities and the world.

"This is the first time, as far as we are aware, that a university has played such an active role in supporting the development of products that will improve the health in the developing world," Loffler said.

"To develop the infant HIV test, a new model of innovation had to be created by bringing together donors, corporate partners, University researchers and engineering and business students," Diermeier said. "This triangular model creates a self-sustaining revenue stream for social impact innovation."

When the foundation was established, the University and the foundation leadership formed a committee to address how they could best make the foundation work. It was important to engage a commercial partner -- Quidel Corporation -- with similar values to help develop the product and advance the foundation's global health mission, Loffler said.
