22-02-2006: NV Organon, STW Technology Foundation (STW) and Radboud University Nijmegen plan to run a joint project designed to shed light on the process of bone, fat and cartilage formation. Organon and STW will be providing financial support for the study, which will be conducted by Radboud University Nijmegen's Department of Cell Biology and Applied Biology.
The four years research project is in line with the objectives of each of the partners: Organon pursues the development of medicines for bone diseases, STW implements a program focused on tissue engineering innovations, and Radboud University Nijmegen gets an opportunity to unravel the mechanisms triggering stem cells to develop into bone, fat and cartilage tissue.
According to Dr. Ard Cools, Valorization Manager of the STW, the Foundation's financial support is being provided as part of the Dutch Program for Tissue Engineering.
In addition to providing part of the financial support, Organon will also serve as the technology partner.
