Partnering Opportunities

Selecta is actively seeking partnerships including in-licensing and out-licensing opportunities that would be consistent with our product and business strategy.

Out-licensing and research collaboration opportunities exist for our Synthetic Vaccine Particles (SVP™) programs. Areas of interest include vaccines and immunotherapies including rare diseases, autoimmunity, allergies, transplantation, cancer, infections, and respiratory diseases. Selecta is also looking for in-licensing opportunities that are coordinated with our Moscow, Russia offices. Selecta Russia has access to development capabilities that enable us to efficiently conduct comprehensive proof of concept studies.

In 2014, Selecta secured a $8.1million grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), an institute within the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) based on the data from Selecta Phase 1 clinical trial. The initial clinical study was funded in part by a $3 million grant from NIDA which was awarded to Selecta in 2010. These $11.1 million in grant funding from NIDA are aimed at advancing the development of a therapeutic vaccine for the treatment of smoking cessation and relapse prevention.


Since 2013 Selecta is collaborating with the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation to develop a novel dual action vaccine for the prevention of Malaria. 


The Skolkovo foundation is providing non-dilutive funding for Selecta supporting the development of a therapeutic vaccine to treat human papillomavirus (HPV) associated cancers. Committed funding is covering IND enabling experiments, GLP toxicology and initial clinical studies. Read more here
