University Partnerships

University Partnerships

Our relationships with universities and institutes allow us to partner with leading innovators from around the world to bring together the best minds to understand unmet healthcare needs, generate new ideas and solve challenges. 

Our mission to save and sustain lives guides us in these activities and inspires our commitment to explore new products and therapies for healthcare professionals and their patients.

In the pursuit of our mission and to support the demand for high-quality products and new impactful therapies, we have a research and development group that continually seeks to work with universities and institutes around the world. Our partnerships are an opportunity for researchers to collaborate in creating life changing therapies and products.
