New biomedical collaboration with China

2018-09-17

In a ceremony on 14 June, the inauguration of a collaboration with the Chinese company USUN Biotechnology and Jiangyin Hi-Tech Industrial Development Zone was held at the Biomedical Centre at Uppsala University.

USUN Bio’s products are based on a protein extracted from mussels. It acts as a glue that allows the mussels to attach to rocks under water. It has several medical applications, including the treatment of burns and other wounds. The research in Uppsala aims to better understand the adhesive and anti-inflammatory properties.

“For Uppsala University, it means that we now have an established partnership with a rapidly growing biopharmaceutical company in China, which gives us new opportunities to conduct research and development in an expansive area”, says Helena Danielson, Professor in Biochemistry at the Department of Chemistry-BMC.
