UTS and General Electric: Advancing Algal Biotechnology
The partnership between GE Healthcare (GEHC) and UTS will contribute to the Australian Innovation System by expanding the pool of world class researchers solving industrial roadblocks, especially in the rapidly evolving biotechnology market. This strategic collaboration between Australia’s leading technology university and the global leader in biotechnology instrumentation will close the technology gap for research and development in the Australian algae biotechnology sector. The unique capability in optics, photobiology and photobioreactor design at UTS underpins GEHC in leading the market in culture platforms for algal biotechnology. Thus UTS provides competitive advantage to GEHC, whilst GEHC is the best-placed industry partner to commercialise the innovations that UTS will deliver to this project.
