A Secret No More, Bioinc@NYMC Plots Its Future Growth
To Dr. D. Douglas Miller, the secret is out on BioInc@NYMC. Now, he said, New York Medical College’s biotech incubator has to find ways to build on its early growth. Miller is the chief scientific officer of the incubator, a public-private partnership on New York Medical College’s Grasslands campus in Valhalla, where he is also dean of the School of Medicine.Launched in 2014 and financed with a mix of county, state and federal funds, the incubator has grown to 10 companies that utilize its administrative and lab space and employ a total of 34 workers. That number includes 13 researchers from the Dutch tech giant Royal Philips, which announced in December it would lease space in the incubator for its genomic research.
