Agreement provides access to world class academic research facilities and resources, including sophisticated imaging and instrumentation capabilities, as Company continues development of groundbreaking bioprinting technology
CHICAGO, Feb. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BIOLIFE4D, a biotech pioneer leveraging advances in tissue engineering to 3D print human organs viable for transplant, today announced it has signed a Laboratory Service Agreement (“LSA”) with Northwestern University (“Northwestern”). The LSA provides the Company access to Northwestern’s world class shared and core academic research facilities and resources, including its sophisticated imaging and instrumentation capabilities.
Access to these core facilities and laboratory equipment will play a critical role as BIOLIFE4D continues the development of its innovative technology and its core mission of being able to 3D bioprint a viable human heart for transplant. The Company will utilize the same resources that are pivotal to Northwestern’s research infrastructure that helps to facilitate groundbreaking science.
“We are honored to have the opportunity to utilize laboratory resources from the prestigious Northwestern University, where such groundbreaking scientific work has occurred. The importance of these resources to a pioneering biotech company really cannot be understated,” said Steven Morris, CEO, BIOLIFE4D. “This is a tremendous opportunity for our Company as we continue to develop our technology. Not only will it provide us access to world class labs, but it also enables us to utilize the most advanced, state-of-the-art equipment, staff, and facilities at these leading research centers. We want to change the world and are now better suited to do so.”
Through the LSA, BIOLIFE4D will have access to facilities at Northwestern’s Evanston and Chicago campuses, Argonne National Laboratory, and Northwestern Memorial Hospital, as well as the University of Chicago and University of Illinois at Chicago through Northwestern’s partnership in the Open Access Initiative.
