Joslin Diabetes Center Announces a Research and Development Alliance with Johnson & Johnson Innovation and Janssen Research & Development, LLC to Identify Exercise-Related Drug Targets to Improve Diabetes Management

Joslin Diabetes Center announced a research and development alliance with Johnson & Johnson Innovation and its affiliate Janssen Research & Development, LLC, to identify and advance early-stage, novel therapeutic projects for potential for commercialization and product development. The first joint project selected in the alliance will focus on identifying exercise-related drug targets for developing new diabetes treatments. The new alliance is based on pioneering studies by Joslin researchers showing that exercise can train multiple tissues in the body that in turn stimulate metabolic improvements in other tissues. Joslin's Office of Commercialization and Ventures (OCV) was created in 2011 to work closely with industry partners and deliver new research and clinical solutions to the diabetes community. The OCV has worked with companies in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology device, and food industries to help conduct research, clinical trials and develop product-driven strategic alliances. The OCV also works with Jenesis Biosciences, a for-profit small business, to incubate and accelerate novel technology opportunities to a commercially ready stage for venture spin-outs and for partner investments.
