To catalyze progress on key industry and societal challenges, we’ve initiated several new innovation programs focused on specific areas. We’re focusing on areas of emerging science where we can leverage multiple DuPont technologies to enable rapid progress. In healthcare, for example, scientists and innovators from across DuPont’s businesses have been working together to identify and move forward on potential solutions to some of the healthcare industry’s biggest and most pressing challenges.
Through collaboration across DuPont’s businesses and beyond, we believe we can help the healthcare industry make biological pharmaceuticals that are safer and more affordable; develop drug delivery devices that will increase patients’ compliance and save healthcare costs; and introduce surgical and wearable devices that can prevent, diagnose and treat disease in ways that are not possible today.
