Ahead Therapeutics is always looking for new partnerships. Our company has a very light structure. We keep the planning and management of the key activities ‘in-house’, which includes the development and synthesis of liposomes for pre-clinical assays.
At the same time, we have an extensive network that serves to establish lasting and trusting collaborations with the best specialists in each subject for the development of scientific and technical activities.
Scientific & Technical Collaborations
Institut d’Investigacions Clíniques Germans Trias i Pujol (IGTP)
IGTP advises Ahead Therapeutics on scientific matters and offers its facilities for in vitro and in vivo assays as well as advising its clinicians.
Institut Català de Nano-Ciència i Nano-Tecnologia (ICN2)
ICN2 advises Ahead Therapeutics on technical matters for liposome synthesis. Ahead has been using its facilities for manufacture of the liposomes needed for the pre-clinical phase.
Vall d’Hebrón Institut de Recerca (VHIR) Barcelona – Centre d’Esclerosi Múltiple de Catalunya (CEMCAT)
VHIR – CEMCAT is where some of the in vivo assays with EAE mice models for MS (multiple sclerosis) are taking place. The group led by Dr. Carmen Espejo has more than 15 years’ experience with that animal model, being one of the leading MS research groups in our country.
ZBM Patents SL / ZBM Business Connect
ZBM Patents is our partner for managing and defining the IP strategy. ZBM Business Connect has also played an important role in the creation of Ahead Therapeutics and is one of our main stakeholders.
Asphalion is Ahead’s partner for defining the regulatory strategy on the CMC (Chemical Manufacturing & Control) pre-clinical regulatory phase. It will also prepare the scientific advisory meetings with regulatory Agencies and support us with IND filing.
It is also highly strategic for us to leverage the company. We have applied for several public calls for funding of research projects with different national and international institutions, such as CDTI; ENISA; H2020 and ICF.
The initial financing round closed in December 2017. The second financing round is currently open. If you are interested in investing, please contact us.
Ahead Therapeutics’ business model is based on out-licensing its own program and establishing joint-venture agreements for the development of our assets.
We are also open to partnerships for the collaborative development of certain projects as well as with third party companies that could be potential licensees.
OUT-LICENSING: early out-licensing before clinical PoC or late licensing after Clinical PoC
JOINT-VENTURE: co-development agreements: Pharma / Biotech companies
Ahead Therapeutics is open to collaboration and partnership. Please contact us.
