Why collaborating with the DZIF could be interesting for you

DZIF researchers develop new therapies, novel diagnostic and preventive measures in numerous projects. The DZIF seeks industrial partners to jointly develop these further through to market maturity. Each partner carries their own risk in these research collaborations, but opportunities for licensing are given. For pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies, collaborating with us constitutes a reduction of risks regarding development costs.

Getting products underway

The DZIF seeks to cooperate with industrial partners. If you are interested, please contact the DZIF “Product Developers” directly. They will inform you about possible collaborations.
