Date:8/9/2013

BOSTON, Aug. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Berg, a biopharmaceutical company committed to uncovering health solutions through a data-driven, biological research approach, announced today an ambitious new partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences' (USU) Center for Prostate Disease Research (CPDR) and The Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine, Inc. (HJF) to offer hope, and possibly one day a cure, for the 238,590 men diagnosed with prostate cancer each year. 

"The CPDR has embarked on one of the most comprehensive prostate cancer research programs in the world and we are honored to be working with such a forward-thinking organization," said Niven R. Narain, Co-Founder, President and CTO of Berg. "This collaboration is an ideal marriage of the CPDR's extensive prostate cancer expertise and Berg's unparalleled ability to drive a deeper level of biological understanding. Together, we have the potential to change the meaning of a prostate cancer diagnosis, and hopefully prognosis, while exemplifying how industry and government can work together to enact real change in public health."

As part of this partnership, Berg and the CPDR will take a data-driven approach to drive molecular intelligence of prostate cancer by uncovering more accurate biomarkers and better therapies for patients. Berg will lend its expertise in computational biology and its proprietary Interrogative Biology™ Platform to analyze the CPDR's extensive supply of prostate cancer data.

"Innovative collaborations, like this one with Berg, are the wave of the future in scientific discovery, and our goal is to illuminate actionable insights from the high volume of prostate cancer data we have generated to move science forward in a significant way," said Army Colonel (re
