At MERLN we aim to establish a strong research community which stretches far beyond our own labs. We facilitate connections between MERLN and industry, including: entrepreneurs seeking access to MERLN inventions and talent, large corporations looking to tap the institute’s research capabilities, and investors wanting to financially support MERLN’s venture-building.
We foster to translate our fundamental research into products with real-world impact, in close collaboration with the Brightlands Health Campus. MERLN stimulates its researchers to understand and navigate the translation of their discoveries and stimulates venture-building.
MERLN is also committed to helping the business community connect to our MERLN entrepreneurs and innovative researchers and continuously initiates new long-lasting collaborations with other national and international research institutes. Moreover, we organize and participate in a variety of outreach activities that informs the general public of our innovative research projects, the latest developments in the field of regenerative medicine and exciting future prospects. We are also very grateful to our philanthropists who make a significant contribution to our research efforts which will ultimately lead to the development of new treatment possibilities to help society and create a new, brighter future.
