[Source: Arizona Daily Star] – The Bio5 Institute, a research group at the University of Arizona, is expanding to Oro Valley.

Bio5 director Fernando Martinez said he is eager for “a new point of collaboration.”

That will come with growing pharmaceutical companies Roche/Ventana Medical Systems – which announced a major Oro Valley expansion Wednesday – and Sanofi-Aventis, as well as other companies in the neighborhood, to further Bio5’s work “transforming scientific advances into medicines that can treat patients,” Martinez said.

It will be called Bio5 Oro Valley.
