Qrons, a biotech company developing hydrogel-based solutions for brain injuries, and Dartmouth College have entered into an exclusive licensing agreement to commercialize 3D-printed treatments for penetrating brain injuries.

The licensed technology is a set of injury-specific, 3D-printable implants that, when combined with Qrons’ proprietary hydrogel, could provide an innovative approach to treating traumatic brain injuries, specifically penetrating injuries. Under terms of the agreement, Dartmouth will receive initial and annual license fees as well as royalty payments based upon Qrons’ product sales.

“We’re excited to have concluded negotiations to acquire an exclusive license for this important intellectual property,” says Jonah Meer, co-founder and CEO of Qrons. “There is a great need for our promising treatments, and this technology is an integral part of our work to develop innovative 3D printable, biocompatible advanced materials.”

Chenfeng Ke, associate professor of chemistry at Dartmouth and developer of the 3D printed technology, comments, “We are excited to partner with Qrons and continue the development of smart hydrogels with 3D printing capability for the treatment of traumatic brain injuries.”
