Ethicon Research Agreement Extended Three More Years

Published August 2010

Ethicon Endo-Surgery has extended its research collaboration agreement with the University of Cincinnati with a three-year, $13.5 million grant.

The extension follows a three-year, $10.3 million agreement signed in 2008 and is part of Ethicon Endo-Surgery’s Metabolic Applied Research Strategy initiative, which is aimed at improving the understanding of the physiological changes resulting from bariatric surgery.

Randy Seeley, PhD, professor in UC’s endocrinology division and director of the Cincinnati Diabetes and Obesity Center, a UC College of Medicine Center of Excellence, leads the collaboration for UC.

The research agreement also includes Matthias Tschöp, MD; Silvana Obici, MD; Stephen Benoit, PhD; David D’Alessio, MD; and Darleen Sandoval, MD, all from UC, and Rohit Kohli, MD, of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

The team’s research is focused on the biological processes contributing to the success of these surgical procedures—with the ultimate goal of developing less invasive treatment options for obese patients.
