What our partners say
“Building on the success of our existing collaboration on hematologic targets, we are pleased to expand and strengthen our partnership with Sanofi on NK Cell Engagers with the addition of up to three new programs, including in solid tumors. Sanofi’s investment in Innate further validates the value of our ANKETTM platform and its potential to address multiple tumor types. By incorporating various tumor antigen binders, NK Cell Engagers are a versatile technology that may provide new options for patients and offer clinical benefit across multiple cancers, whilst also maintaining a good safety profile.”

“Sanofi is a global leader in the development and commercialization of innovative therapies, and we look forward to working with their talented team to build novel small molecule therapeutics that modify RNA splicing for the treatment of critical diseases of high unmet need. We are excited to develop drugs for challenging targets with Sanofi and look forward to working together on these potential first- and best-in-class programs.”
Bill Haney, Chief Executive Officer
“We are thrilled to enter our first major licensing transaction with a partner of Sanofi’s caliber and capabilities as a global leader in the development and commercialization of rare disease therapies. Our goal since initiating this program has been to develop a treatement to allow FSHD patients to live a normal life. The philosophy driving our DREAmiR discovery platform focuses on patient centered drug development and strong scientific decision making. We believe Sanofi shares these core values on creating life changing therapies, making this an ideal partnership to bring forward our anti-DUX4 RNA therapy.”
