A Berlin university holding a patent application for a microstructured polymer stent is looking for a licensing or research partner in order to develop the stent further from prototype to large scale application. The stent can be used to keep or rebuild the luminal size of passages in the human body like coronary arteries or the esophagus. It helps to prevent problems of traditional stents like in-stent restenosis and stent loss as well as late side effects of drug eluting stents.
The university is looking for a partner who is willing to develop the stent prototype further in the framework of a licence agreement or a research collaboration. This can be a research institution as well as a private company working in the field of medical technology. The aim is to reach large-scale application of the microstructured polymer stent. The development can be done by the partner alone on the basis of a licencing agreement or in cooperation with the University on the basis of a respective research cooperation agreement.
