Collaboration for Innovation

The foundation for Nordion's growth is innovation. Collaboration-creative, productive alliances between diverse constituencies in the pursuit of a shared goal - is the genesis for medical innovation, providing the fuel that enables people to achieve extraordinary results.

We pursue innovation and unique partnership opportunities through our personnel, academia, private and public institutions, licensing, and acquisitions. This approach provides remarkable benefits including accelerated development cycles and decreased discovery and testing costs. In addition, tighter interdisciplinary collaboration provides an efficient approach to identifying and fast-tracking new ideas and concepts - all in the name of a faster commercialization process that brings beneficial and personalized medicine to the patients who need them most.

Our research and development efforts span Institutional Collaboration and Commercial Collaboration. In addition, many of Nordion's scientists and engineers are named as inventors or co-inventors on several patents supporting our focus on intellectual property innovation.
