Summary: Millipore Corporation, a leader in life science technologies, tools, and services for bioscience
research and biopharmaceutical manufacturing, has been working with UCSB scientists for less than
two years. While the company has collaborative relationships with other universities, its budding
involvement with UCSB is already unusual for the broad spectrum of projects in which Millipore is
engaged.
"It began in 2007 when Millipore provided a three-year, $50,000 grant to UCSB stem-cell investigator
Dennis Clegg for his ongoing research," says Dr. Rubén Flores-Saaib, manager of scientific

stem cells.
Flores wanted an opportunity to expand his relationship with campus
researchers and so he contacted Leslie Edwards, director of Corporate
Business Development. Edwards orchestrated a day of one-on-one
meetings with a number of researchers. Based on that visit, Millipore through
Flores-Saaib has fostered new relationships with molecular, cellular and
developmental biologists Erkki Ruoslahti, Leslie Wilson and Thomas Weimbs.
Ruoslahti, an expert in cancer and tumor research, is co-developing novel
reagents and a number of antibodies with Millipore. Wilson's expertise is
in the mechanism and regulation of cell function and is a consultant for
