Albany, New York. AMRI (NASDAQ: AMRI), a global contract services organization, announced today that it has entered into a preferred provider agreement with BioPontis Alliance LLC. The agreement is aimed at supporting BioPontis’ mission to bridge the gap between early-stage research and technologies being discovered and developed in academia and other research entities. AMRI will provide its services in small molecule discovery, development, and manufacturing in BioPontis’ drug discovery research programs. The agreement also supports the need for proof-of-concept data that is required in the current pharmaceutical company licensing environment. The goal of BioPontis Alliance is to identify promising early stage product opportunities and utilize a preferred network of CROs and leading research companies to apply appropriate expertise to develop these opportunities enough to attract pharmaceutical company licensing partners. BioPontis Alliance has established research alliances with a number of the nation’s leading academic-research institutes, in which BioPontis searches for innovative science that has the potential to be translated into new treatments for cancer, neurology, inflammation, and infectious diseases. BioPontis Alliance currently has agreements with a consortium of leading universities and research institutions, including New York University, Columbia University, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, University of Pennsylvania, University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill), University of Virginia, University of Kansas, Oregon Health and Sciences University, Thomas Jefferson University and the University of Florida. In addition to partnerships aimed at identifying early technology, BioPontis has entered into preferred partnership agreements with leading pharmaceutical companies, including Janssen Biotech (wholly owned by Johnson & Johnson), Pfizer and Merck.
