Why we’re doing this

At Aspect, we are developing a targeted pipeline of bioprinted therapeutics to make people healthier. But there are so many other opportunities to address unmet medical need.

We launched the Bioprinting Technology Grant in order to:

  1. Expand the application of our technology to more therapeutic areas
  2. Generate publications to contribute to the ocean of knowledge required for therapeutic development
  3. Accelerate the creation of new commercial pathways to get to the clinic faster

You/your institution retain the intellectual property developed during the project and Aspect has the option to negotiate a license to commercialize by leveraging our expertise and deep biopharma and VC network.

By combining your expertise with our technology platform and scientific and commercialization support, we believe that we can bring a greater number of innovative bioprinted therapeutics to the clinic, faster.
