Boehringer Ingelheim Expands Alliance with Graffinity

  • Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals chose to exercise options in its original agreement with Graffinity Pharmaceuticals  that will increase the number of targets screened by Graffinity as part of this global alliance. Under the terms of the agreement, Graffinity will receive additional technology access fees for the generation of multiple novel small molecule hit series against a variety of drug targets from different therapeutic areas.

    Both companies reiterated the importance of the continuation and expansion of this successful collaboration which complements Boehringer Ingelheim's in-house capabilities and will include a significant number of additional drug targets.
