Chimp Haven, Inc.

13600 Chimpanzee Place Keithville, LA 71047Chimp Haven was founded in 1995 in order to respond to the need for long term chimpanzee care. The need for care extended to those chimpanzees no longer used in biomedical research, the entertainment industry or the pet trade. Genetically, chimpanzees are more closely related to humans than any other species. Because of their physiological and behavioral similarities, chimpanzees have been an attractive animal model for many researchers. In the 1980s the U.S. government launched an intensive breeding program. The resulting offspring were the intended research subjects for hepatitis and HIV studies; however, with new research models and developing technologies, the use of chimpanzees in human disease research declined in the 1990s. In 2000, the CHIMP Act (Chimpanzee Health Improvement Maintenance Protection Act) was signed into law, establishing the Federal Sanctuary System. In that same year, The Parish of Caddo, Louisiana provided 200 acres of forested land, nestled in the Eddie D. Jones Nature Park, in which to build the sanctuary. Chimp Haven was awarded the federal contract to create a sanctuary where its residents could live in large social groups in spacious, outdoor habitats and where they could live out their lives in a setting that afforded them greater freedoms and self-determination. In 2005, the first two chimpanzee residents, Rita and Teresa, came to live at Chimp Haven. In 2007, the Chimp Haven is Home Act was passed. This law closed a loophole in the CHIMP Act and prohibited chimpanzees retired from biomedical research to be returned to laboratories. In a landmark decision on June 22, 2013, the National Institutes of Health announced that all but 50 federally owned chimpanzees were officially retired, paving the way for more than 300 additional chimpanzees to make their way to Chimp Haven in the future. Currently there are more than 40 employees who are responsible for the overall care of the chimpanzees. The organization includes administrative support; husbandry and veterinary care; chimpanzee behavior, observational research and enrichment; education and facilities and grounds maintenance. Since our inception, we have cared for well over 300 chimpanzees and are currently home to more than 200.

Intralox

301 Plantation Road New Orleans, Louisiana 70123 USAIntralox was founded on the commitment to an idea. In 1947, Intralox founder JM Lapeyre patented the first industrial shrimp peeler, but encountered problems moving the peeled shrimp on metal conveyor belts due to rust and corrosion building on the belts. He approached major rubber and steel conveyor belt manufacturers to produce a modular plastic belt, but he was told this was not feasible. Undeterred, JM invented the modular plastic conveyor belt—and thus, Intralox was born. Today, Intralox leads the way in helping customers achieve their goals by offering comprehensive conveyance solutions that create significant economic value. Locally-owned and globally-headquartered in New Orleans, Intralox delivers innovative, premium technology within a direct business model.

During Phase II, and under the scientific direction of Dr. Paulo Rodriguez, and with the oversight of Dr. Augusto Ochoa, the CIMC evolved to provide cutting edge technologies not only to COBRE-supported PJI, but also to the LSUHSC investigators and to other users in our region. The CIMC laboratory now provides comprehensive analytic flow cytometry and high-speed cell sorting services, immune function assays including antigen specific and mitogen induced cell proliferation, cytokine production, cell mediated cytotoxicity, and effector T cell frequency. During Phase II, the CIMC also acquired and developed the infrastructure and expertise to study cellular metabolism (of tumor cells and immune cells), including oxygen consumption rate and mitochondrial mass and function; and the detection of immune mediators through multiplex approaches. The state-of-the-art services provided by the CIMC and its experienced team allow the investigators to identify new biomarkers for inflammation, new mechanisms of immune dysfunction in disease, and innovative approaches to overcome immune suppression in diseases characterized by chronic inflammation, thereby increasing their chances for high impact publications and federal and foundation-related funding. These advanced technologies have positioned the CIMC as the leader laboratory in inflammation and immune research in the region, which has resulted in an increased number of users and its integration as a core laboratory at the LSUHSC School of Medicine and the LSU-Cancer Center. The main goal of Phase III is to expand the number of users by providing the most advanced technologies to study inflammation and disease as they become available, and to complete the integration of CIMC as a Cancer Center and School of Medicine Core. Thus, our proposal encompasses the potential of significantly improving the quality of translational research in the State of Louisiana.

NuPotential, Inc.

340 E Parker Blvd, Baton Rouge, LA 70808NuPotential is pioneering the discovery and development of next generation “Epi-drugs”, novel compounds that modulate epigenetic targets and their processes, initially for the treatment of cancer. Epigenetics is the study of the epigenome, a group of functionally relevant and ubiquitous genomic modifications that do not involve a change in sequence in the underlying genome’s DNA sequence. With its role as a key player of gene expression, epigenetics is a rapidly emerging and highly promising source of new drug targets. NuPotential discovery technologies and efforts focus on the two major components of the epigenetic machinery: histone modification and DNA methylation. Many serious disease states, including cancer, diabetes and neurodegenerative disorders are linked to or are a result of aberrant gene expression regulated by the epigenome. The Company’s two most advanced programs include histone methyltransferase and DNA methyltransferase modulators initially being evaluated as cancer treatments. Research at NuPotential and by others has shown these select areas hold great promise as attractive and tractable therapeutic targets.

Tulane University SoM COBRE THRCE Animal and Gene Targeted Core

1430 Tulane Ave. United States New Orleans, LA, 70112 United StatesAnimal and Gene-Targeted Core supports the study of genetic traits in intact animals has transgenic and gene-targeting experiments in which desired genetic changes are made in the germ-line. The facility maintains and generates new breeding pairs, genotyping, and colonies of genetically manipulated mouse and rat. These genetically engineered mouse and rat models and gene-targeted mouse strains are made available to COBRE investigators and others for hypertension, cardiovascular and renal research. The study of genetic traits in intact animals has been facilitated by transgenic and gene-targeting (genedisruption/ knockout and gene-duplication) experiments in which desired genetic changes are made in the germ-line. Thus, the creation of genetically engineered transgenic mouse and rat models and gene-targeted mouse strains has provided tremendous advancements in biomedical research. The technology to insert, delete, replace, and/or mutate genomic sequences in the living animal models or in specific tissues of interest has provided enhanced opportunities to reproduce or delete the pathogenesis of human diseases and/or to identify their molecular targets. If the gene of interest is quantitive such as blood pressure and cardiovascular function, it requires great efforts to maintain uniform genetic background. The transgenic and gene-targeting technologies provide novel model systems for undertaking the type of investigation through analysis that have either decreased (gene-knockout) or increased (gene-implication) gene copies at the normal chromosomal location controlled by natural regulatory gene sequences. The primary goal of the Transgenic and Gene-Targeted Animal COBRE Core is to provide each investigator an access to our knowledge, resources, and technical support to establish breeding pairs, genotyping, maintain, and generate new colonies of genetically manipulated mouse and rat colonies. For the Phase III period, the Transgenic and Gene-Targeted Animal Core facility will be a major resource that will continue providing genetically established mouse and rat models for hypertension and cardiovascular and renal research to the COBRE investigators and others at the Tulane University Health Sciences Center. The core will provide the service, education, and training to our investigators, research fellows, students, and staff to establish, maintain and generate new breeding pairs, genotyping, and characterization of genetically manipulated mice and rat colonies.

AxoSim Technologies

1441 Canal Street New Orleans, LA 70112 USAUtilizing advanced, patent-pending Nerve-on-a-Chip(TM) technology, AxoSim facilitates preclinical prediction of neurological safety and efficacy early in the drug development pipeline. Employing micro engineering techniques and novel biomaterials, we utilize a 3D human cell-based model which mimics living tissue in both form and function. Deliverable metrics are both structural and functional, determining changes in nerve fiber density, fiber type, myelination level, myelin thickness, as well as population level electrophysiology. Dose and time dependent effects can be measure in near real-time. By providing a tissue engineered alternative to exploratory animal testing, pharmaceutical companies will have access to high content data faster and earlier than currently possible. Other services include 2D high content imaging and multi-electrode array services. We have extensive expertise with iPSC and primary neuronal cultures and co-cultures with different glia (Schwann cells, astrocytes, etc.) and can perform dose response assays for neurotoxicity applications. In addition, we have done work with disease lines for neurological diseases, (e.g. ALS SOD1).
