Startup Success

"I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your personal involvement and all of the work that you do at OIC in terms of leading the way towards the development and commercialization for our new company, GlimmerDx, that emanates from my lab at UCSD. Without your work, there is no way we could have moved forward as we have done, including the recently filed provisional patent and engagement of the startup community here in San Diego."

Joseph M. Vinetz, M.D. - Professor of Medicine
