Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Appoints Teri F. Willey to Accelerate Commercialization Efforts
Date:9/10/2013

Cold Spring Harbor, NY (PRWEB) September 10, 2013

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) today announced that Teri F. Willey has been appointed Vice President of Business Development and Technology Transfer. In this newly created position, Ms. Willey will direct the Laboratory’s commercialization and technology transfer activities, including patenting, licensing, company start-ups, and corporate partnerships and collaborations.

Ms Willey joins CSHL from Mount Sinai Medical Center, where she successfully led the center’s technology transfer and business development efforts. John Maroney, who previously had responsibility for technology transfer activities, will continue in his role as General Counsel.

Ranked #1 in the world for research impact in the fields of molecular biology and genetics, CSHL has a rich history of biomedical discovery and technology advancement and has sparked more than 20 start-up biotech companies -- including one of Long Island’s biggest pharmaceutical success stories, cancer drug developer OSI Pharmaceuticals, which was recently acquired by Astellas.

“CSHL’s transformative discoveries over many years in such areas as cancer, autism and other neuropsychiatric disorders, genome analysis, plant biology, and biofuels have significant commercial applications that will improve diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in the clinic as well as in agriculture and energy production,” said CSHL President Bruce Stillman. “The appointment of Teri Willey to this new position will ensure that our research advances are applied to society’s biggest challenges in healthcare, the environment, and world hunger and will enable us to maximize the economic potential of the biomedical research cluster on Long Island. Ms. Willey has an outstanding reputation and track record, and we are extremely pleased to welcome her to CSHL.”

“Underlying the strength of Long Island’s biomedical research cluster are leaders like John Maroney, who has been an integral part of CSHL as Vice President of Technology Transfer and General Counsel for 20 years,” Dr. Stillman continued. “With successes that include the founding of the Broad Hollow Bioscience Park in 2000, John has helped lay the foundation for Long Island to leverage the academic and clinical assets of its leading institutions, including CSHL, Stony Brook University, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Hofstra University, and the North Shore-LIJ Health System. We are extremely grateful for his many contributions and look forward to his continued service to CSHL as General Counsel.”

Ms. Willey has had a distinguished career in technology transfer and venture capital. Most recently, she served as Vice President of Technology & Business Development at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan. As the head of commercialization at Mount Sinai, she is credited with reorganizing technology transfer to support the medical center’s vibrant innovation agenda through partnerships with industry, investors and funders.

Prior to joining Mount Sinai, Ms. Willey was founding Chief Executive and Executive Director, Cambridge Enterprise Ltd, The University of Cambridge, UK, and was a co-founder and Managing Partner of ARCH Development Partners, a seed venture fund and spin out from the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory technologies. Earlier in her career, she served in technology transfer and business development at Purdue Research Foundation, Indiana Corporation for Science & Technology, and Northwestern University. She has served as an advisor to Congress and is a past President of the Association of University Technology Managers.
