Abstract

The Netherlands-based DSM and the Japan-based National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) announced today the agreement on collaborative research in biomedical-related material science, initially focusing on the joint development of biocompatible materials that are inert against protein adsorption and cell adhesion.
 
The two-year agreement was signed on June 1, between Dr. Jos Put, Chief Technology Officer of DSM Innovation Center, and Dr. Sukekatsu Ushioda, NIMS President. The partners expect this joint research project to be the first of many collaborative undertakings in a long-term partnership going forward.
