      Neena Kadaba works to initiate new collaborations between industry and QB3 campus scientists and manages QB3’s multi-year, multimillion dollar alliance with Pfizer. She runs the Quadrant industry speakers seminar series to link scientists from industry to scientists in academia and startups, writes the quadrant@qb3 newsletter focused on highlighting innovation at the QB3 campuses, and manages QB3’s internship program. Neena also supports QB3's pre-commercial funding program, the Bridging the Gap fund, designed to provide grants for research with a high commercial potential.

      QB3 offers a suite of services for faculty at UCSF, UC Berkeley and UCSC. In addition to the Bridging the Gap pre-commercial funding program, funded by the Rogers Family Foundation and other industry partners, QB3 manages a large collaborative effort with Pfizer, designed to set up scientific collaborations between Pfizer scientists and UC faculty. QB3's start-up resources include the Startup In A Box program, which provides incorporation services, startup documents, a bank account, SBIR writer support, interns, mentorship and legal advice. QB3 runs 4 garages and incubators in SF and Berkeley, currently home to 43 startups, and manages Mission Bay Capital, an $11.5M seed stage venture capital fund, designed to support startups from the UC system.

      Previously, Neena co-founded Cypress Innovations and was an associate and Kauffman Fellow in the venture capital group at Itochu Technology. She earned her BS at the Massachussetts Institute of Technology and her PhD in chemistry at the California Institute of Technology.
