Redbiotec AG has entered into a research collaboration and exclusive option agreement with a large-cap pharmaceutical company. The collaboration will leverage Redbiotec’s proprietary bacteria platform BRISPR® for the targeted delivery of gene therapy cargos from the partner.
“Redbiotec’s bacteria hold great potential in overcoming the delivery hurdles faced by conventional vehicles, such as adeno-associated viruses (AAVs) and nanoparticles. It is our goal to empower promising gene therapies for unmet medical needs through safe and targeted delivery,” said Christian Schaub, CEO of Redbiotec. “We are very pleased with our first pharma partnership on the BRISPR® platform. Together, we will push the boundaries and create a new class of genetic medicines.”
