GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The Van Andel Research Institute (VARI) and the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) will forge a strategic alliance that will enable both to maximize their worldwide contributions to science and health.

The non-profit researcher institutes jointly announced today the initiation of an "alliance and affiliation agreement."

The partnership between Grand Rapids, Mich.-based VARI and Phoenix, Ariz.-based TGen will enable both institutes to speed up their mutual goals of moving research discoveries about cancer and other debilitating medical conditions as quickly as possible from laboratories to patient care.

VARI is the research arm of the Van Andel Institute (VAI), established in 1996 as a philanthropic research and educational organization by the late Jay and Betty Van Andel.

"We are excited to welcome TGen as they combine forces with us in our mission to conquer cancer and human disease," said VAI Chairman and CEO David Van Andel.
