USF Health and Tampa biotech firm form clinical research partnership


    The University of South Florida Health Taneja College of Pharmacy is partnering with a Tampa-based biotech firm to help build the talent pipeline and expand research.

    USF Health has partnered with Morphogenesis, a biotechnology company developing immunotherapies for cancer patients, on a two-year contract that runs the gamut. The affiliation agreement will allow for clinical and clinical research collaborations, opportunities for students to intern for Morphogenesis, and the company will co-chair USF’s College of Pharmacy Industry Advisory Board. Through the position on the board, Morphogenesis officials could serve as guest speakers for USF’s graduate courses.
