Kalamazoo life sciences startup outgrows incubator, moves downtown: Fueled by growing revenues and an expanding workforce, a start-up life sciences company that was incubated in Kalamazoo Valley Community College's Michigan Technical Education Center is establishing new headquarters in downtown Kalamazoo.

Established in October of 2003 by former Pfizer Inc. researchers Patricia Ruppel and James Dancy, Innovative Analytics was the first start-up enterprise to locate in the second-floor incubator of the college's M-TEC in February 2004. Encouraged by Southwest Michigan First to apply for Michigan Life Science Corridor funding, Innovative Analytics received a grant to provide data-management and statistical-analysis services for clinical, pharmacogenomic and biomarker research trials. With gross revenues exceeding $1 million during 2006, Innovative Analytics has pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical-device clients in the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia, Iceland, France, Great Britain and Germany.

Ruppel and Dancy, who were colleagues in a Pfizer experimental medicine unit in downtown Kalamazoo, brought with them 27 and 17 years, respectively, of Kalamazoo-based experience with The Upjohn Co. and Pharmacia. They both left Pfizer in the fall of 2003.
