CELLINK announces collaboration with MedImmune

CELLINK, focused on the development and commercialization of innovative bioprinting technologies, has announced that the company will enter a year-long collaboration with MedImmune, the global biologics research and development arm of AstraZeneca, providing 3D-Bioprinted tissues to aid in the exploration of new disease targets in MedImmune’s core therapeutic areas, including oncology, respiratory, and cardiovascular, renal and metabolic diseases.

The collaboration will leverage CELLINK’s innovative and patent-pending bioink, which enables human cells to grow and thrive as they would in the human body. CELLINK will provide a small team of experts to be embedded with MedImmune scientists in the biotech’s Gaithersburg, MD facility. MedImmune will provide expertise in early stage discovery process, antibody and protein engineering and optimization, as well as a real-time opportunity to evolve the CELLINK technology based on needs and applications of scientists in the lab.
