10 Questions

Can you give specific examples of projects you've worked on and partners you've collaborated with?
In 2005, we entered into a multiyear collaboration with the Brno branch of VOP Šternberk and focused on developing enzyme-based technologies for decontaminating military devices. Šternberk is a state-owned company established by the Defense Ministry, and it conducts R&D, testing and specialist training for NATO, the Czech Army, the Interior Ministry and the Industry and Trade Ministry. Its specialties include defense against nuclear, biological and chemical attacks, electronic warfare and camouflage. Together we work on enzyme-based technology for neutralizing chemical weapons.

Last year, we announced an agreement to produce recombinant proteins and develop novel, biologically active molecules for Contipro, a producer of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. They're involved in a rapidly developing field that combines nanotechnology with biopharmaceuticals, focusing on tissue engineering, wound healing, gene therapy and targeted drug distribution.

For example, Contipro produces substances used for manufacturing products like anti-aging and wrinkle creams.
