Moderna to Collaborate with Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska University Hospital on Discovery of New Messenger RNA Therapeutics™

Moderna Therapeutics announced a strategic, long-term collaboration with Karolinska Institutet (KI) and Karolinska University Hospital (KUH) for the discovery and development of innovative drugs using Moderna's messenger RNA (mRNA) Therapeutics™ technology. mRNA Therapeutics™ enable the in vivo production of both intracellular proteins and secreted proteins. As a result, Moderna's platform has the potential to speed the development and manufacture of treatments for many diseases that are currently untreatable with existing pharmaceutical approaches. Under the terms of the partnership, Moderna will sponsor research grants for scientists at both institutions to conduct preclinical research with novel mRNA Therapeutics™. As this pre-clinical work is successfully completed, Moderna will conduct clinical trials of new drug candidates at Karolinska University Hospital. To solidify the scientific and clinical collaboration between the organizations, and to optimize the output of this important partnership, Moderna is creating a new laboratory in Stockholm, Sweden, located in the Novum building next to the Karolinska University Hospital Huddinge campus.
