Discovery & early stage collaborations

Ferring works in close collaboration with world-leading academics and biotechnology companies to translate new ideas into innovative medicines. We value partnership and working together to move science forward.

We are focused on identifying emerging new ideas, targets, assets and technologies based on cutting-edge biomedical research in our key therapeutic areas.

Areas of particular interest include:

  • Identification of novel drug targets addressable with peptides and/or proteins with an emphasis on our core therapeutic areas.
  • Convergence of peptide-protein technology and identification of novel peptide chemistry.
  • Peptide modulators of stem cell fate, the immune system and/or interaction with gut microflora.
  • Biomarkers for indications including but not limited to endometriosis, prostate cancer and inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD).
  • We are also seeking pre-commercial opportunities that complement our existing portfolio and development competencies.
