This collaboration will further accelerate our efforts at UC San Diego to translate the exciting discoveries being made every day in our laboratories into improved diagnostic and treatment technologies that benefit all patients," said David Brenner, M.D., UC San Diego Vice Chancellor for Health Sciences. "The ability to work more closely with colleagues in the private sector will strengthen our translational research program, and enhance the education of our medical, pharmacy and graduate students, in addition to boosting the potential for new product development."

Brenner joined with G. Diego Miralles, M.D., Head and Chief Medical Officer of J&JPRD's Research and Early Development unit based in San Diego, to sign the MOU in ceremonies at the UC San Diego School of Medicine.

Echoing Dr. Brenner's enthusiasm, Dr. Miralles noted that "academia and industry are natural partners since we have complimentary expertise and share the common goal of addressing unmet medical needs. Working closely with our neighbors at UCSD will help us find win-win opportunities and maximize our common capabilities. We are very excited about the potential of this partnership."

The two organizations plan to create education, training and research collaborations in biomedical science, medicine and public health, with a focus on projects that lead to new clinical applications. In addition to signing the MOU, the organizations also signed the first agreement between UC San Diego Health Sciences and J&JPRD under the MOU framework a contract for UC San Diego Professor of Pharmacology Larry Brunton, Ph.D., to conduct laboratory studies to evaluate the effects of new compounds on heart tissue.
