In a recent press release, A*STAR revealed that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with two foreign parties. The MoU is targeted for collaboration in selected key projects for commercialisation and clinical use.

The initiation of the collaboration will first target surgical procedures, intra-operative diagnostics and diabetic management. It will also include access to over 15,000 patients and volunteer. It will also include access to over 2000 clinical and research trials.
