Genesis Imaging Services, a cloud-based image analysis tool for scientists and researchers, has taken up root at the Commercialization Center for Innovative Technologies — a life science incubator owned by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority.

Genesis said it moved to CCIT in North Brunswick after outgrowing its current shared space in Princeton.

Genesis said it has conducted and published projects with the Cleveland Clinic, University of Michigan, University of Florida, University of San Diego, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and NASH-Clinical Research Network, and has serviced major pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in fibrosis quantification.

“When it came time to find lab space for Genesis Imaging, I knew right away that CCIT offered the amenities we needed,” Genesis Imaging CEO Mathieu Petitjean said. “We couldn’t be happier with the personalized attention, affordable lab space, and access to business-development resources. Locating in central New Jersey also positions us well to form partnerships with the many large pharmaceutical companies based in the Garden State.”

CCIT, which is home to nearly 24 businesses, offers discounted first-year rent and provides tenant companies — like Genesis — with educational programs and support resources.

“Seeing innovative entrepreneurs like Mathieu choose to locate in New Jersey reaffirms Governor Murphy’s message that the Garden State is reemerging as leader in innovation,” NJEDA CEO Tim Sullivan said. “We are pleased that Genesis Imaging has chosen to be part of the exciting things that are happening at CCIT.”
