Autobahn Labs Announces Key Licensing Milestones in Alliances with Early University Partners

Autobahn Labs, an early-stage drug discovery incubator, announced today that it had executed exclusive license agreements to foundational technologies in its collaborations with the Los Angeles and San Francisco campuses of the University of California. The objective of Autobahn’s collaborations with its academic partners is to identify academic research programs targeting important unmet medical needs and to advance their commercialization in companies it launches.

“Significant unmet need remains for effective treatments for IBD,” said Peter Kotsonis, Interim Vice Chancellor of Business Development, Innovation and Partnerships at UCSF. “We’re very pleased to see this innovative research form the basis for a startup built upon foundational IP licensed from the university”, he added.

The UCSF principal investigator is Dr. Pamela England.
