Philips became the anchor tenant at the college’s biotech incubator, BioInc@NYMC. The company, which has 16 employees at the incubator, said it will use the 1,300-square-foot space for genomics research. “We know from genomic studies, we can trace in real time where they came from and we can do something about it,” said John T. Fallon III, M.D., Ph.D., professor and chairman of the Department of Pathology. “Either close down the room, do better cleaning or certain other things to prevent that infection from going to another patient.”
