Murrieta Genomics To Host Genomic “Lunch’n’Learn” Event on February 25th
Date:2/13/2020

Murrieta Genomics, the provider of genomics services and a launch pad for genomic sequencing startups, will be hosting a lunch and learn event on February 25th from 11:30 am to 1 pm at the University of California Riverside (UCR) Multidisciplinary Research Building. Entrepreneurs, researchers and interested members of the public are invited to attend this free event, but must register in advance.

“This will be a great opportunity for people to learn about some of the advances and applications in genomic sequencing that are driving precision medicine, precision agriculture and many other emerging industries,” stated John Powers, President of Murrieta Genomics. “As a genomic sequencing incubator, we are always looking at new ideas and potential business opportunities in this space.”

The inaugural lunch event will focus on Murrieta Genomics and some of the companies that the incubator is working with.

“We are a true incubator,” continued Powers. “We don’t charge bench fees or administrative charges to our companies. We want to help them validate their science through our next generation sequencing lab. At the same time, we work with them to develop a viable business model. By the time they leave the incubator they should be well on the way to commercialization.”

Murrieta Genomics has been meeting and working with UCR researchers since the company’s inception. Genomic sequencing plays a large part in both precision medicine and precision agriculture, two areas of focus of the research university. This lunch event is designed to encourage collaboration and networking between university staff, students and the local business community.

Lunch is provided by Beckman Coulter Life Sciences. For more than 75 years, Beckman Coulter develops, manufactures and markets products that simplify, automate and innovate complex biomedical testing, research and manufacturing. Scientists use Beckman’s life science research instruments such as centrifuges, cellular analyzers and particle counters, flow cytometers, and genomics kits and automation, to study complex biological problems including causes of disease and potential new therapies or drugs.

“We are very happy to sponsor this event,” stated Kelli Roinick Webb, Senior Life Science Research Sales Consultant for Beckman Coulter. “Advances in genomic sequencing are driving new discoveries on a daily basis, and we are very pleased to support the researchers in academics and private industry that are developing great new ideas.”

Murrieta Genomics holds office hours at UCR’s Wet Labe Incubator every Tuesday from 11 am to 3 pm. During office hours, researchers and entrepreneurs from the community can discuss advances in genomics technologies and the company’s core service capabilities with the company’s principals.

Future topics for the “Lunch’n’Learn” series will be precision agriculture, gene assembly, advanced data analytics and other topics suggested by UCR researchers that will have direct applications to the University’s areas of interest.
