Connecticut Becoming A Hub For New Bioscience Companies

FARMINGTON, Conn. (AP) – Technology and bio-medical companies looking to start and grow in Connecticut can take advantage of new laboratory space at the University of Connecticut.
Eighteen companies have taken up residence in the new labs at the school’s Cell and Genome Sciences building on the UConn Health campus in Farmington.
The laboratories are part of the school’s Technology Incubation Program, designed to help these startup bioscience companies become successful.
School officials say many of the companies are run by former UConn students or faculty.
Their products include a device that will help doctors map microbes in the bodies of patients with certain illnesses, another that would track the progress of some chronic illnesses by analyzing a patient’s breath and personalized medicine for patients with genetic cholesterol disorders.
