Seattle’s Infectious Disease Research Institute Announces Amended License Agreement With Merck
Date:8/3/2020

Seattle’s Infectious Disease Research Institute (IDRI) today announced that an agreement has been reached, to amend and restate IDRI’s license with Immune Design, a wholly owned subsidiary of Merck (known as MSD outside of the United States and Canada). Under the amendment, the parties have agreed to modify the licensed fields and indications under which Merck has the rights to use IDRI's Glycopyranosyl Lipid Adjuvant (GLA) technology (including the GLA and SLA adjuvants), in exchange for potential milestone and royalty payments. The amendment also permits IDRI to conduct research and development of GLA and SLA to treat cancer in low resource regions, itself or through collaborations and partnerships in this area in the future.

“This is an important milestone for IDRI with a premier global vaccine manufacturer,” said IDRI’s CEO Dr. Corey Casper. “This represents an incredible opportunity for our adjuvants continued availability to people around the globe.”

IDRI is committed to sharing technology to ultimately create vaccine platforms and technologies to combat the world’s most devastating infectious diseases and cancers, with a special focus on those that affect women and children. Licensing agreements such as this permit other research organizations, universities, foundations and in this case, pharmaceutical companies, to utilize IDRI’s intellectual property, adjuvants and specific processes/formulations, all with the goal of developing new solutions for treating infectious diseases and cancers.
