U-BIOPRED (Unbiased Biomarkers in the Prediction of Respiratory Disease) was an Innovative Medicines Initiative funded project. When the funding period ended in September 2015 the partners amended the consortium agreement to allow it to stay in effect as a governance model for handing IP and publications.
In parallel, a core group of partners joined the U-BIOPRED Alliance which is a project development membership community coordinated by BioSci Consulting. Members of the community meet on a regular basis to carry out an ongoing dialogue to identify opportunities for new projects and to co-develop projects. The U-BIOPRED Alliance welcomes members who were not part of the original IMI funded project.
