Wayne State University startup, Advaita, to participate in new Michigan I-Corps program
Date:4/23/2013

We offer the only pathway analysis software that looks at each type of gene and its position and role on the pathway. The advantage to Advaita's software is that it eliminates the false positive results that are common with current methods of gene-expression analysis."

According to Draghici, the traditional method of measuring mRNA transcriptsanalyzing the differences in the levels that genes are expressedis not a comprehensive way to understand disease. "Our software takes those differences and tells us where along a pathway those genes went wrong," he explains.

Advaita's software has already garnered a Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I and Phase II grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) worth $2.4M; and $125K from the Michigan Emerging Technologies Fund. In addition, Advaita was selected this year to participate in the prestigious NIH CAP (Commercialization Assistance Program).

While knowledge gained from grant-supported basic research frequently advances a particular field of science or engineering, clinically-relevant results show immediate potential for broader applicability and improved patient care. Such results may be translated through I-Corps into technologies with near-term benefits for the economy and society. With these goals in mind, Advaita plans to address the need for more streamlined drug-discovery methods that will save time and money for the academic and pharmaceutical industries. By leveraging Pathway-Guide's unique ability to more efficiently target specific genes implicated in a disease or disease treatment, the company will commercialize a technology benefitting both the Michigan economy and our society as a whole.
