MPI acquires Jasper Research and Development

MPI Research of Mattawan is continuing in its pursuit to the be a "one-stop resource"  for drug makers looking for better ways to develop and test their products.

In June of 2013, MPI Research partnered with two companies that came with the experience and high-tech equipment to accelerate drug discovery and development. Groundbreaking for the new Translational Imaging Center with its cyclotron and specialized services took place September 2013 and it is scheduled to open in the spring of 2015.

Now, MPI has acquired Jasper Clinical Research & Development, Inc, known for its wide range of services connected with early-stage drug studies.

The company says "both initiatives – the Translational Imaging Center and Jasper Clinic – will provide biopharmaceutical companies with the opportunity to move their drugs and devices more efficiently along the development pathway."

Jasper Clinic has experience in providing research results on what drugs do to the body, what happens to the drugs as they move through the body, including and how they are metabolized and excreted. It has studied how certain genetics differences cause drugs to metabolize in different ways. And the clinic has experience with biomarkers, a substance introduced into an organism as a means to examine organ function or other aspects of health.

"This is a unique and exciting opportunity for us to become part of a contract research organization that truly offers bench to bedside services," says Dean Knuth, founder of Jasper Clinic.

The acquisition includes Jasper Clinic's 50-bed clinical trial unit. The three-story, 25,000-square-foot clinic is located on the downtown Kalamazoo campus of Bronson Hospital, and is physically connected to Bronson's Level 1 trauma center.

Jasper Clinic has a long history, beginning when it was constructed in 1984 and used as a testing unit for Phase 1 clinical trials for the Upjohn Co. When Pfizer Inc. and Pharmacia Corp. merged in April 2003, it became an independent operation known as Jasper Clinic.

Many of the more than 80 staff members of Jasper Clinic have been with them throughout the various organizational changes. They will now become MPI Research employees.

The acquisition of Jasper Clinic gives MPI the opportunity to further strengthen its collaborative relationships with other life science organizations located in the immediate vicinity: Bronson Methodist Hospital and the new Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine, says MPI Research Chairman and CEO William U. Parfet.

"The addition of the Jasper Clinic is an important step toward making MPI Research the leading 'one-stop' resource for the early drug development community. From candidate selection in discovery, through preclinical safety assessment, proof-of-distribution imaging studies, and now, clinical trials, we can offer the full continuum of lead to proof-of-concept services for new drug candidates," says Parfet.

The building that houses WMU's Lee Honors College has been awarded LEED silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. It is the 10th building on campus to receive LEED certification and 10 more are currently in the certification process.

"With 20 buildings either completed or going through the certification process, WMU is a leader in the state and region for LEED-certified buildings," says Peter J. Strazdas, WMU associate vice president for facilities management. "As WMU continues to focus on its sustainability goals, our Facilities Management department team will continue to be successful in gaining LEED-building certifications and reducing overall energy costs."

LEED is considered the national benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings. To receive certification it must be shown that the building meets rigorous standards for sustainability, water and energy efficiency, resource selection, and environmental quality.

Soon WMU students will have a chance to learn more about the LEED certification process. Details are being worked out to offer a graduate class that can give students the opportunity to obtain practical experience in certifying buildings. Those enrolled in the class will assist WMU in the detailed process of collecting the data on existing campus buildings that is required for them to earn LEED certification.
