      From Novartis annual report:

      "Since its integration into the Novartis Group, Alcon has leveraged NIBR to gain access to a range of technologies, from biologics to structural biology and high throughput screening, that previously were only available to it through external partners. With expanded R&D capabilities, Alcon has prioritized glaucoma and macular degeneration in drug discovery efforts."

      Merger was completed with Alcon in April of 2011, but yet they signed on for another year with Zalicus a year later in April of 2012.
