Gladstone’s Office of Corporate Liaisons and Ventures facilitates interactions between our scientists and the external biomedical community that can advance their discoveries to benefit patients. This extended community includes biopharmaceutical companies, disease foundations, venture groups, and other research centers and clinics.
Our primary goal is to facilitate translation of Gladstone’s basic science toward therapeutics that ultimately help patients. From licensing our patented technology, to collaborating with corporate partners, to launching start-ups, our experienced business development team provides customized services and support for all of our scientists.

Partner with Us
Gladstone encourages and supports the vital role industry and investors play in bringing the results of basic science to the benefit of patients suffering from cardiovascular, viral, and neurological diseases.
By partnering with Gladstone scientists, companies have access to the foundational science and expertise available only at Gladstone. The Office of Corporate Liaisons and Ventures has facilitated dozens of sponsored research agreements between Gladstone and biotech and pharmaceutical companies.
Sponsored research agreements are collaborative projects that are fully funded by the industry partner. The partner collaborates with a Gladstone investigator to jointly draft a research plan and budget, the results of which may be exclusively licensed to the partner through an option agreement.
We work with industry partners, such as:
