We hope you enjoy reading the third edition of our newsletter. As the previous numbers, the cover includes an opinion column, in this case of our Chief Business Development Officer, Javier Ramirez. The main news is about R2B Catalyst’s inauguration, a program inspired by the model of UC Davis’ Venture Catalyst. As this initiative was created by Dushyant Pathak, Associate Vice-Chancellor of UC Davis, he came to the event.

In every edition we explain a research line, in this case its the genetic identification of clones of the wine industry’s most relevants strains. We also include highlights of our numerous activities, including visits from UC Davis: doctors Gail Bornhorst, Richard Snyder and Daniele Zaccaria. Last but not least, we include some news about the Chilean Students’ Association at UC Davis and a new interview for our section “Getting to know a UC Davis Alumni”.
