UCSF, Sanofi collaborate to find new diabetes cures
Date:1/10/2012

The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) has signed an alliance with international pharmaceutical company Sanofi (EURONEXT: SAN and NYSE: SNY) to share expertise in diabetes research and identify drug targets that could lead to new therapies for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

The $3.1 million collaboration will bring together scientists in three UCSF labs with deep understanding of the biology of beta cells insulin-producing cells that are destroyed in type 1 diabetes and often produce too little insulin in type 2 with Sanofi researchers who are experienced in developing potential drug candidates into actual therapies.

"This is a true partnership between scientists with very different strengths," said Matthias Hebrok, PhD, director of the UCSF Diabetes Center. "UCSF is known for its deep understanding of the underlying biology of diabetes, while Sanofi has great expertise in screening compounds, identifying which molecules have potential, and moving them along to develop a new drug. Such an endeavor is almost impossible to accomplish in a single academic laboratory. Thus, both partners profit from the expertise of the other group."

The alliance is the University's third collaboration with Sanofi, alongside brain trauma and oncology research launched last year, since the two signed a master agreement in January 2011 to work together in translating academic science into potential new therapies. Master agreements lay out the fundamental terms of research collaborations, align with the University's academic mission including broad publication rights, and form part of a core strategy for the UCSF Office of Innovation, Technology and Alliances to expedite that "bench-to-bedside" research.

Partnershp Combines Expertise on Both Sides

This also is the first collaboration of its kind for the UCSF Diabetes Center, extending beyond simpler, funded-research agreements to create a two-way partnership in which s
