To foster the translation of ideas into innovation, Bayer is looking for disease-related biomarkers and novel drug targets as a basis for the development of new therapeutics.

Find out about Bayer’s Grants4Targets™ program which supports university research on novel targets. The therapeutic areas of interest are oncology, gynecology, cardiology and hematology. By combining expertise from industry and academia, the program is designed to accelerate the transition from basic research to new promising treatment options.

Hear about Bayer’s recently launched Grants4Indications™ platform which supports ideas for a non-clinical research project to evaluate a Bayer compound in a new indication.
