At KASO we’re always interested in hearing news about new developments in the medical device market. Which is why we were particularly excited when we saw a recent post that Penn State was opening its new Medical Plastics Center of Excellence, a 10,500 square foot facility created to help educate students and assist companies working to develop new medical devices and packaging.

Jason Williams, head of the new center, discussed the role the new facility would play in plastics medical device development: “Our mission is to partner with companies to maximize medical device performance and lower the cost of healthcare.”

The Medical Plastics Center is part of an open lab initiative where members of industry and academia work together in order to share expertise and resources.
