FORT LAUDERDALE/DAVIE, Fla. –  NuLife Sciences (OTCQB: NULF) through the company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, NuLife BioMed, Inc., today announced that it has moved into space at Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) prestigious Center for Collaborative Research (CCR), where it will conduct research on the NuLife Technique, a means to potentially eliminate the need for tissue matching between donor and recipient in kidney transplants and the need for anti-rejection medication post-surgery.

As one of the CCR’s first tenants, NuLife has leased 350 square feet of space in the new, state-of-the-art facility, which offers collaboration with NSU’s expert researchers and access to the CCR’s sophisticated equipment, technology, laboratories. There, it will advance its research and development of its NuLife Technique ranging from basic research to pre-clinical studies that are slated to begin in June 2017.

The CCR is located at the southwest end of Nova Southeastern University’s Fort Lauderdale/Davie campus near the NSU Health Professions Division. Researchers and tenants throughout NSU’s CCR have access to the following core facilities, further enhancing collaboration opportunities:

  • Genomics Core for sequencing human genes associated with disease
  • Flow Cytometry Core for isolating special cell types such as immune and stem cells
  • Cell Therapy Core for developing immunotherapies and regenerative medicines
  • Imaging Core with advanced digital microscopy capabilities

“The NSU Center for Collaborative Research is exceptional, ideally suited for the specialized research we will be conducting to advance the commercialization of our NuLife Technique,” said John Hollister, NuLife Sciences Chief Executive Officer. “It provides NuLife a complete, turnkey solution in a premier academic setting where we will also have access to ancillary resources ranging from undergrad and graduate interns to grant writing expertise and much more.
