Protein Polymer Technologies (PPTI) will provide genetically engineered protein polymers to the University of Arizona Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, according to a materials transfer agreement.
The University of Arizona plans to design, fabricate, and test the properties of protein-based biomaterials and scaffolds for applications in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine using PPTI's protein polymers.
Under the agreement, PPTI will have the first option to negotiate a worldwide, exclusive or nonexclusive, royalty-bearing license agreement to the University's inventions or joint inventions enabled by the use of PPTI's protein polymers.
