Partner with us in drug discovery!

 

You have a technology to offer and are looking for a partner to assess, use and progress it?

As an innovation leader in life sciences, collaboration is key to us, and we aim to be your partner of choice.

Submit your technology or project and we will jointly explore opportunities for collaboration in drug discovery.

 

Share your hot topics with us:

 

We are looking for disruptive technologies useful in the therapeutic areas of Cardiology, Oncology, Hermatology, Endocrinology, Metabolism, Reproductive Health or Ophthalmology – or ideally for all of those as a platform technology. Having said that, breakthrough innovations for other or multiple indications might be of interest as well.

Specifically, in the area of GENE THERAPHY we are looking for:

  • Non viral Gene delivery and targeting to specific tissues beyond the liver, e.g. using lipid nanoparticles (LNPs), exosomes, …

In the area of CELL THERAPHY we are looking for:

  • Engineering of Immune cells (e.g. T-Cells, NKT-Cells, NK Cells, Dendritic Cells, …) for better tumor penetration and resistance to intra-tumoral immune suppressive effects in solid tumors (Immunotherapy using CAR-T like approaches).

In the area of DELIVERY / MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGIES we are looking for:

  • Separate/reduce amount of empty virus particles in scalable Virus (AAV) production process (considering vector design, ITR, protein engineering, chromatography, IEX, HIC, …).

 

Submission process:

1. SUBMIT YOUR TECHNOLOGY OFFER OR PROJECT IDEA

Please check the indications and technologies we're interested in and submit your proposal online, including an abstract describing your technology, its characteristics & therapeutic potential, relevant publications and IP situation.

Please note that any information that you submit is non-confidential.

2. EVALUATION OF YOUR PROPOSAL

6 - 8 weeks after submission

The information provided will be evaluated by Bayer scientific experts. The decision is dependent on current specific needs and actual research project portfolio.

3. FEEDBACK

A Bayer scientist will contact you regarding the decision and to discuss possible next steps.

4. COLLABORATION

If you and we agree to jointly explore your technology, we will negotiate a contract reflecting both parties interests to enter into a collaboration or licensing project.
