Working in cooperation with leading laboratories.
Kraig creates efficiency by bringing technologies together
from diverse research institutions and combining them.
This is done under the direction of the company's management
in cooperation with the leading academic laboratories in
our fields of research.
The Kraig Research Initiative is our
program of working
with and funding university scientists and laboratories to
create technologies with significant commercial applications.
As a part of this program, we have licensed university intellectual
property in the fields of genetics and genetic engineering.
The company works in cooperation with leading laboratories
to add value to our proprietary technology. The company sponsors
and collaborates on research within the universities' genetic
engineering laboratories as a means of employing the greatest
minds in our discipline.
Through the Kraig Research Initiative
we share our technology with university scientists, and
work cooperatively with them
to achieve what neither we nor they could reasonably hope
to achieve alone. Our work is directly responsible for major
in the development of recombinant fibers and recombinant spider silk.
