Experiences on „tech transfer“ at the Institute of OrganicChemistry and Biochemistry CAS Martin Fusek
IOCB●Located in Prague, Flemingovo nám.●Part of Czech Academy of Sciences●Currently 530 employes, app 400 scientists andstudents●Mission – basic research in the areas of organicchemistry, biochemistry, chemistry of naturalcompounds and theoretical chemistry with strongemphasis on application of the results for betterhuman life.
Research at IOCB● Main areas: ●Medicinal chemistry = 40 % of the institute ●Organic synthesis = novel reactions and compounds for e.g. „nano-elektronics“, novel agricultural applications etc. ●Biochemistry – fundamental processes connected to various pathologies (HIV, other viral diseases, microbial infections) ●Chemistry of natural compounds – e.g. Insect signalling and its application in defense of cultural plants ●Theoretical chemistry – experiments „in silico“
Collaboration with company Gilead Sciences●Gilead Sci.– today company with sales around15 bil USD, most of it based on discoveries ofprof. A. Holý.●Since early eighties●Friendship●License agreements●Now – income for the IOCB - „royality stream“ +GSRC – scientific collaboration
IOCB TTO s.r.o.●Incorporated – August 2009●Functional – January 2010●People ●Director ●Patent attorney ●Administrative ●New person entering in November●Status ●100 % owned by IOCB
