[Source: The Arizona Republic] – TGen was formed as the catalyst that could help lift Arizona to the ranks of biotech highfliers.

But as the Translational Genomics Research Institute strives to fulfill such an ambitious vision, it will do so with a Michigan-based research institute as co-pilot.

TGen has finalized a pact with Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Van Andel Research Institute that gives the Michigan research group some control of Phoenix-based TGen.

As part of the alliance, TGen will get $10 million or more each year, according to a contract obtained by The Arizona Republic through a public-records request.
