"Deakin had this really extensive experience in silk and silk fibroin and it grew from there, it grew from a wonderful relationship between scientists. Geography has made absolutely no difference, it's just because the people really want to work together, it has been very productive. It's one of the best collaborations in science that I've worked in and I think it's because the people are right and they want it to work."

"Callidus is very open to new ideas and, so far, these new concepts are working well. The benefits and learning has been two-way, which is how a partnership should be.
Already the technology is being adopted commercially with clear benefits. The partnership we have developed with Deakin is a true win, I hope for both teams.
Innovation although a bit overused today is at the core of our DNA as a company. What happened when Deakin became a resource has been truly magic. Almost every trial we have placed has performed exceptionally well and to date two new products have been born."
