Murrieta Genomics and University of California Riverside Partner to Foster Genomic Research and Commercialization

Murrieta Genomics, the genomic sequencing business incubator, has executed a Memorandum of Understanding with UC Riverside’s Research and Economic Development Office to assist researchers and entrepreneurs in developing and commercializing genomic-related applications in healthcare, agriculture and other areas of social importance.

The commercialization of intellectual property from universities is an ongoing challenge. This agreement is intended to facilitate the flow of ideas and research to the private sector through a structured framework that protects UC Riverside’s intellectual property.

Under the agreement, both parties will work together to commercialize genomic-related research and intellectual property developed by scientists at UC Riverside. Murrieta Genomics will provide specialized genomic sequencing services to UC Riverside staff and students along with training and mentorship. In addition, Murrieta Genomics will promote UC Riverside’s EPIC Small Business Development Center (EPIC SBDC) services to companies in the Murrieta Genomics incubator.

UC Riverside, through EPIC SBDC, will aid incubator companies and will facilitate introductions to faculty experts for collaboration. The university will also pair Murrieta Genomics with researchers working in various genomic fields for evaluation of potential commercial applications.

“UC Riverside is a virtual gold mine of intellectual property in the genomic area,” stated Jay Goth, a co-founder of Murrieta Genomics. “We have had initial discussions with several researchers and scientists at the university and are very excited to bring our network of industry leaders and entrepreneurs to the commercialization process.”

“The Murrieta Genomics team has built a genomic sequencing laboratory and assembled a strong advisory board to help researchers turn projects into companies,” said Rosibel Ochoa, associate vice chancellor for technology partnerships at UC Riverside. “This is a critical ingredient needed to spur advances in genomics from lab to market. As a leading agriculture and biomedical research organization we want to encourage partnerships that can address today’s challenges.”

The Murrieta Genomics team expects to work closely with EPIC SBDC. “As a former EPIC SBDC consultant and former Entrepreneur-in-Residence at UC Riverside, I know how incredibly important it is for startups to receive the right guidance,” continued Goth. “I look forward to bringing the rich intellectual property out of the labs, matching scientists together with proven entrepreneurs, and forming new successful biotechnology companies in the region. Genomic science is still in its early stages, and the opportunities are enormous.”
