Roche Madison Moves to New Facility
Date:4/23/2009

- State-of-the-art facility designed to foster drug delivery -

MADISON, Wis. and NUTLEY, N.J., April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Roche Madison Inc. officially opened the doors to a new state-of-the-art facility with chemistry and biology labs at the University of Wisconsin Research Park in Madison. Part of the global RNA Therapeutics group within Roche, the group's research focuses on the discovery and development of innovative nucleic acid based technologies, including a proprietary RNAi (Ribonucleic Acid interference) delivery platform. RNAi - a natural mechanism that the body uses to 'silence' certain genes - represents a potential whole new class of therapeutics for difficult to treat diseases. The site currently has a 45-member staff and plans to hire additional staff during the next six to 12 months as part of its planned expansion.

In 2008, Roche purchased Mirus Bio Corporation, a leader in the fields of RNA interference and gene therapy, which became Roche Madison. "We are very pleased to be a vital part of the Roche RNA Therapeutics program and our new facilities will help ensure that we can continue to develop our technology in the most advantageous manner for targeted drug delivery," said Jim Hagstrom, vice president, Operations, Roche Madison. "As one of the few pharmaceutical sites in the state, we look forward to remaining a vital part of the Madison landscape and to finding innovative ways of getting RNAi therapeutics into specific disease targets to benefit patients."

"The presence of the new Roche research site within the University of Wisconsin Research Park represents a win/win situation for both Roche employees and for the Madison economy overall - and it further validates that the high quality research being performed by the Madison scientific community is being recognized by the world's lea
