External open innovation partner programNovel therapeutic targets in immuno-oncology

Are you working on immune-oncology? Have you identified new targets for these diseases? Are you interesting in partnering with argenx to translate your science into a new medicine?

What we are looking for

We are looking for proposals to identify novel targets that are causative factors of the disease for the treatment of cancer. The target should be secreted, localized in the extracellular matrix or a transmembrane protein with extracellular domains.

At the preclinical stage, selected molecular targets should be supported by clear scientific data derived from in vitro, ex vivo, or animal models. Molecular targets identified in clinical trials (up to Phase II clinical trial) shall also be considered.

Target should give the opportunity to get first-in-class therapeutics.

What we offer

All proposals will be assessed by our Research & Development team. Based on the level of interest within our research portfolio and the strategic fit of the proposals into argenx long-term research focus, we will enter into discussion with selected candidate(s), potentially leading to funding and partnership agreements.

Proponents that submit proposals of interest will be contacted within three weeks of submission to clarify additional details concerning the underlying science as well as intellectual property rights, timelines, etc.

What to submit

Submit your proposal online (it takes about 15 minutes) in a form and length that is sufficient to provide the substance of the proposal and its innovativeness. The applicant should also demonstrate his or her expertise in this specific field and target.

Privacy, confidentiality & FAQ

While argenx will not share the information beyond its own staff, your initial proposal should contain only non-confidential information.

If your proposal is selected, you will be requested to complete a Confidentiality Disclosure Agreement (CDA).
