Partnerships

We believe purposeful partnerships can change the world

We know we are not the only ones that want to see the revolutionary science of mRNA therapeutics transform lives. Partnerships with pharmaceutical, other biotechnology companies and non-profit organizations who share our mission, help extend the reach of our technology to impact more people globally.

We are always looking for new strategic partnerships that can help take our mRNA technology to the next level and into the hands of those who need it most.

Current Strategic Partnerships

Lilly

Lilly and CureVac are collaborating on the development and commercialization of up to five potential cancer vaccine products based on CureVac’s proprietary antigen-coding mRNA therapeutics. The companies will use CureVac's mRNA technology that targets tumor neoantigens for a more robust anti-cancer immune response.

Boehringer Ingelheim

Boehringer Ingelheim and CureVac collaborate to develop next generation lung cancer immunotherapy with CureVac’s CV9202 in different clinical settings. This partnership adds a highly innovative new approach to Boehringer Ingelheim’s lung cancer portfolio.

CRISPR Therapeutics and Casebia Therapeutics

CureVac collaborates with CRISPR Therapeutics, a genome editing company focused on creating transformative gene-based medicines for serious diseases, and Casebia Therapeutics, a joint-venture established by CRISPR Therapeutics and Bayer AG for developing CRISPR-based therapeutics in select disease areas. Under the terms of the agreement, CureVac will develop novel Cas9 mRNA constructs with improved properties for gene editing applications, such as increased potency, decreased duration of expression, and reduced potential for immunogenicity.

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

The common goal of the partnership between CureVac and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is to develop mRNA-based vaccines against various infectious diseases which have an enormous impact on global health.

Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI)

CureVac has teamed up with CEPI to further develop The RNA PrinterTM prototype, a transportable, down-scaled, automated mRNA printing facility that can rapidly provide mRNA-based vaccine candidates for known pathogens. Under the partnership, CureVac will undertake the preclinical (and eventual phase 1 clinical) development of such candidate vaccines—prioritizing Lassa fever, rabies, and yellow fever.

Harvard Medical School

CureVac has partnered with the Schepens Eye Research Institute of Massachusetts Eye and Ear, a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, to discover and develop novel mRNA-based candidates for undisclosed eye indications.

Yale University

CureVac has entered into a Collaborative Research Agreement (“CRA”) with Yale University for discovery research into mRNA-based pulmonary therapeutic candidates. The exclusive CRA covers the development of an undisclosed number of novel mRNA-based candidates for pulmonary diseases.

Current Technology Partnerships

Acuitas Therapeutics

CureVac cooperates with Acuitas Therapeutics Ltd, a company specializing in the development of lipid nanoparticle (LNP) delivery systems for molecular therapeutics. This collaboration will allow CureVac to access the full patent portfolio and know-how of Acuitas and its lipid technology. The objective of the collaboration is the development of LNP-formulated mRNA product candidates.

Arcturus Therapeutics

CureVac has entered into a collaboration with Arcturus Therapeutics Ltd. (NASDAQ:ARCT), an RNA medicines company, to access the full suite of Arcturus’ lipid-mediated delivery intellectual property to enable the development of mRNA product candidates.
