The Kenneth S. Warren Institute is a not-for-profit organization based in Durham, North Carolina that as of 2017 appears to be defunct.[1][2]

It had been based in Tarrytown, New York, and in 2001, the institute bought a 15-acre (61,000 m2) campus located in Westchester County, New York from the Kitchawan Institute.[3] At that time its director and lead researcher was Anthony Cerami, and it was a medical research institute that had been doing research related to erythropoietin derivatives they called "tissue protective cytokines".[4][5] They also said that they coordinated with researchers who were working on vaccines for neglected tropical diseases.[6] Cerami has been president and trustee of an organization called the "Kenneth S. Warren Laboratories, Inc." as of March 1998.[7]

The Kitchawan facility was for sale as of 2014.[8]

In 2001, Warren Pharmaceuticals was formed to commercialize inventions made at the institute, starting with the cytokines, with funding from Lundbeck and a Danish bank; Cerami was chairman of the board.[4][5][9] In 2001, the company licensed the cytokines to Lundbeck in the field of central and peripheral nervous system disorders.[4][10] The development program was terminated in 2007.[11]The current address for Warren Pharmaceuticals is 520 White Plains Road, Suite 500, Tarrytown, NY 10591.
