Rusnano Invests With U.S. Venture Fund

Rusnano subsidiary RusnanoMednvest and U.S. venture fund Domain Associates have joined a consortium investing $55 million in the U.S. firm ReVision Optics, which is developing technologies to treat age-related vision loss, Interfax reported.

The ReVision investment is the fifth joint investment between Rusnano and Domain Associates, under an agreement signed in March 2012, RusnanoMedinvest said in a statement.

The investment consortium includes Canaan Partners, ProQuest Investments and InterWest Partners funds, which, along with Domain Associates, are co-owners in ReVision. RMI and Johnson & Johnson Development Corporation are new investors.

ReVision Optics is at the forefront of efforts to commercialize the technology to treat presbyopia, the loss of near vision that is a natural part of the aging process and afflicts the majority of people over the age of 50.

The investment will be used to conduct clinical research in the U.S. and Russia and for registration of the technology.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
