Research is in Medela’s DNA

Time to read: 1 min.

Medela is a research-based company that invests in basic and exploratory research with global key opinion leaders. This provides a scientific basis for product innovation and clinical practice. Through these activities, Medela brings research to life.

Fostering long-lasting collaborations

Basic, exploratory research is a long-term proposition, and we are in it for the duration. Over the years Medela has developed long-standing relationships with leading researchers. These partnerships are a model for how industry and academia can work together.

Medela continually looks for new partner universities, hospitals and research institutions around the world to join these collaborative programmes.


Challenging fundamental principles

The outcomes of this exploratory research generate knowledge that often challenges fundamental principles. This provides a scientific basis for the next step of conducting applied research and, in turn, for product development and clinical research. Research is an integral part of the innovation process, which leads to products that challenge existing practices.


Continuing the journey of discovery

Medela’s commitment to research, both product and non-product related, is more than a simple claim. As a truly research-based company, Medela will continue its research journey into the future.
