CLEVELAND, Sept. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BioMotiv today announced that it has secured $21 million in financing from its founding investors, University Hospitals and the Harrington Family. 

"BioMotiv is a new model for accelerating breakthrough discoveries into medicines and aligning capital and collaborations to develop a portfolio of therapeutics," said Baiju R.

"The challenge of translating discoveries into clinical development requires an innovative, next-generation business model," said Ron Harrington, a successful entrepreneur and recognized philanthropist. "BioMotiv's mission-aligned model and experienced team will enable it to efficiently and effectively manage a portfolio of early-stage drugs."

BioMotiv is the mission-driven, for-profit therapeutic accelerator affiliated with The Harrington Project for Discovery and Development, a $250 million initiative announced by University Hospitals this past February.
