University of Alabama at Birmingham  A collaboration to jointly conduct high-throughput structural analysis of validated drug targets.

University of Rochester  A research collaboration with Dr. Mark Noble of the University of Rochester under a Phase I SBIR Grant to Athersys to discover and validate novel CNS drug targets.

Molecumetics  Athersys will provide Molecumetics with cell lines expressing up to 12 validated drug targets produced using the RAGE-Validated Targets technology. Molecumetics plans to use its chemistry based "screen-to-IND" technology platform to develop novel small molecule drug candidates against the validated targets. Targets may be licensed by Molecumetics or co-developed with Athersys.

Cleveland Clinic  A collaboration to discover and functionally validate novel drug targets that play an important role in cancer and inflammation. Athersys scientists will work with researchers under the direction of Dr. George R.
