HUYA Bioscience International Announces A Strategic Alliance With The Korea Drug Development Fund

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- HUYA Bioscience International, the leader in accelerating global development of China's pharmaceutical innovations, today announced it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Korea Drug Development Fund (KDDF) to foster collaboration between KDDF and HUYA with the ultimate goal of advancing Korean development and commercialization of healthcare products for the global market.

HUYA is the first company to have recognized China's potential as an important source of new innovative preclinical and clinical stage compounds. The company advances the development and value creation for China-sourced novel biopharmaceutical compounds in worldwide markets. HUYA has already established more than 100 agreements with leading universities and research institutes throughout China as a pioneer in the licensing of both preclinical and clinical stage compounds from the country. Now the company will expand that effort to include Korea in partnership with the KDDF.

"This partnership is particularly exciting given Korea's emerging biotechnology products coupled with HUYA's mission and track record in bringing drug candidates from Asia for global development, said Mireille Gillings, Ph.D., CEO of HUYA. "We look forward to great success from this alliance in the coming years." "We are very pleased about working with the KDDF adding to our activities in China and Japan" said Clem Gingras CTO and COO of Asia. "We now have strategic alliances in all three countries involved in the Tripartite Cooperation Treaty."

KDDF's CEO, Sang Aun Joo, M.D., Ph.D. said, "We are expecting that adding more promising drug candidates via the strategic alliance with HUYA would deliver substantial performance for Korean pharmaceutical R&D to maximize global licensing-out opportunities and to enter global new drug development arena"
