GE Healthcare Life Sciences and Uppsala BIO signed a two-year collaboration agreement under which Uppsala BIO will run the scouting activities among researchers or smaller companies needing support to advance their projects, and that will be financed by GE Healthcare on a case by case model. The goal is to improve the future equipment used for the production and processing of biopharmaceuticals, with a special focus on early research projects that are already in a product development phase or even on the market. The proposals can be submitted on a continual basis.
