Flagship Pioneering has entered a collaboration with Pfizer to develop a new innovative therapy pipeline.

The parties will make an investment of $50m each to assess prospects for developing ten single-asset programmes.

The companies will utilise Flagship’s ecosystem of more than 40 human health firms and biotechnology platforms.

Pfizer will hold the option to buy each chosen development programme.

Flagship and its bioplatform firms are entitled to receive milestone and royalty payments of up to $700m for each programme that successfully enters the market.

A Flagship Pioneering initiative, Pioneering Medicines, is partnering with the research and development leadership of Pfizer and will oversee the discovery process to aid in quick portfolio development.
