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.
