Current Focus

Telmarc has been actively developing and investing in medical technology and genomics areas. We believe that these may very well replace many of the more classic technology investments. We have been developing some hands on applications and seeking opportunities.

Specifically we are currently involved in collaboration with major Teaching and Research Hospitals in commercializing internally developed systems and services. The areas of interest span from Imaging to Genomics. The primary focus has been on Cancer related projects. Telmarc enters into joint ventures with the Institutions wherein it develops business, brings investments and management, and grows the opportunities into a commercial entity benefitting all parties.
