PPTI to Aid University of Arizona in Regenerative Medicine Work

Company will provide genetically engineered protein polymers.

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.
