Collaborations

At Manchester BIOGEL we work closely with our customers and this often leads to collaborative projects.

We currently hold an Innovate KTP grant and we support several PhD students across the UK and Ireland. In each case, our aim is to exemplify and expand the application of our PeptiGel® and PeptiInk® products.

Do you have any ideas for potential collaboration? Do you want to find out more about our PhD CASE studentship scheme?
Then get in touch to have a chat.

Find below an introduction to our active collaborative projects.
