Tangen opens doors on new Branford digs   
Gov. Ned Lamont, U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal and other luminaries were on hand Thursday afternoon when Tangen Biosciences unveiled its new 16,300-square-foot facility at 20 Commerce Drive in Branford.

The company, founded in 2013 in Guilford, relocated this month from a 2,700-square-foot facility at 11 Sycamore Way in Branford that it had occupied since spring 2018. The new Commerce Drive facility will be used to manufacture products for Tangen's upcoming clinical trials later this year.

Tangen has developed TangenDX, a field-deployable molecular diagnostic platform used to detect pathogens. According to the company, the proprietary device's speed, ease of use and sensitivity promise to improve patient outcomes while reducing costs. Read More

At Yale Science Building, a move-in as big as the research to come   
Anna Marie Pyle may not wield a nail gun or run a crane, but she's painstakingly followed the progress of nearly every girder and glass panel for her laboratory's new home just the same.

It's been a captivating process to watch, she says, and now she and hundreds of Yale researchers and students are poised to generate a tsunami of new science from the cutting-edge facilities at the Yale Science Building (YSB). Located in the footprint of the former J.W. Gibbs Laboratory building on Science Hill, YSB offers faculty and students seven stories and 280,300 square feet of newly finished space in which to answer some of the most important scientific questions of the 21st century.

But first the researchers have to get into the place - prompting the Great Yale Science Building Move-In of 2019.

It has gone on for nearly a month already. Old labs are being decommissioned; new labs are powering up; ongoing experiments are being carefully tweaked so they can be paused and resumed later. Read More

Lt. Governor helps Milford kick off 2020 census effort            
The message from state and local officials who gathered in Milford Tuesday morning was that it will be safe to fill out the 2020 census, and it's important to complete the form so the state, and its municipalities, receive their share of federal dollars.

Lt. Gov. Susan Bysiewicz has been visiting communities around the state to talk about the upcoming census, and her visit to Milford was one of those stops.

She talked about the need for census data, and said there are a few challenges regarding the 2020 count, including misinformation about a citizenship question.

The Supreme Court ruled that a citizenship question will not be included on the 2020 census, but Bysiewicz said the issue has created distrust. Read More

Mildly polluted CT properties could soon be ready for development
A working group of individuals from the business, real estate, legislative, and environmental communities met for the first time Thursday to figure out how to get hundreds of Connecticut properties back on the tax rolls.

In a small room at the Legislative Office Building, Sen. Joan Hartley, D-Waterbury, sought to define the task at hand and divide the group into subcommittees. They have until Feb. 1, 2020, to make recommendations to the legislature.

Their task is to clarify the Connecticut Property Transfer Act, which was adopted in 1985 to encourage the clean-up of environmentally challenged properties. However, in its current form, the legislation is impeding economic growth and has produced none of the desired environmental outcomes. Read More
