Mimetics Moves to RTP

Mimetics has combined its laboratory and corporate offices and moved to Research Triangle Park. We are now in the old Hamner Building on Davis Drive.

Mimetics Awarded SBIR Grant from the NSF

nsf1Mimetics is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a Phase I SBIR grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). This award, which falls under the Computational Biology and Bioinformatics funding program, will assist us in two major ways. First it will help in the development of our newest software and algorithms that assist in analyzing gene expression data. Secondly,the SBIR will enhance our work into gene regulatory networks as well as a greater understanding of these critical networks that underlie so many biological processes.

Dr. Ashlee Valente Joins Mimetics

Dr. Ashlee Valente is our newest hire at Mimetics. Dr. Valente earned her B.S. and M.S. in Bioinformatics at Rochester Institute in Technology and completed her doctoral studies at Duke University in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. Ashlee’s doctoral thesis work focused on the development of statistical models to improve computational pre-processing of transcriptomics and proteomics data. During her postdoctoral work, Ashlee worked extensively on applied biomarker discovery. She has extensive experience building predictive models for clinical outcomes in infectious disease and biopolymer exposure in transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics data. Dr. Valente brings with her an enthusiastic pursuit of leveraging this type of data via quantitative systems biology to advance understanding of biological mechanisms.

Mimetics to Collaborate with NCATS

Mimetics is pleased to announce that it has teamed up with the National Center for Advancing Translational Science (NCATS). Our work with NCATS will be focused on the creation of new antibiotic screening protocols.

We are thrilled to move forward with a group that has been so committed to Translational Science and to “…turning observations in the laboratory, clinic and community into interventions that improve the health of individuals and the public.” (NCATS) and look forward to all that this collaboration produces.

Small Business Research Loan Program Award

NCBC_logo_Red187_and_BlkWe are pleased to announce that the North Carolina Biotechnology Center in Research Triangle Park has presented Mimetics with a top tier technology award from its Small Business Research Loan program. Funds associated with this award will go towards supporting Mimetics’ work in creating new ways of culturing pathogenic organisms and developing new systems and devices for improving commercial fermentation processes. Mimetics was chosen from a large field of extremely strong companies, and we would like to thank the NC Biotech Center for this award, as well as all of the people that have supported us in working towards this accolade.

2016 Ag/Bio Entrepreneurial Showcase

Mimetics is proud to announce that it has been selected as one of twelve top new companies to present at the 2016 Ag/Bio Entrepreneurial Showcase in Research Triangle Park. Mimetics was chosen from a large field of companies from the US and abroad. Presentations will be held at the North Carolina Biotechnology Center beginning at 8:30 am, on May 18th. This showcase is designed to connect top-level technology companies with companies interested in new partnerships and investors looking to support innovation in the field of Ag/Bio. There will be an award for best and most exciting new technology presented. The showcase is open to the public, and we encourage anyone interested in learning about Mimetics and our cutting edge technologies to attend.
