WuXi PharmaTech (Cayman) Inc. has announced the establishment of a representative office in the Tel Aviv area of Israel.

The new office will promote WuXi's broad platform of integrated R&D services to local customers. It will also collaborate with Pontifax, a leading healthcare-dedicated venture capital firm based in Israel, to invest in promising technologies in Israel, particularly those that can potentially advance WuXi's capabilities.

"We welcome WuXi's presence in Israel and believe the new representative office will be mutually beneficial to WuXi and the Israeli biotech industry," said Tomer Kariv, CEO of Pontifax.

"We are excited to establish a presence in Israel and to contribute to one of the most dynamic healthcare innovation ecosystems in the world," said Dr. Ge Li, chairman and CEO of WuXi PharmaTech.

Dr. Li continued, "We value the expertise that Pontifax has developed in Israel's biotech industry and look forward to working closely with them to help many of their portfolio companies and other startup companies. This step advances WuXi's mission of helping entrepreneurs in the global life sciences industry to realize their dreams of developing innovative products to benefit the world's patients."
