Technology to transfect DNA into cells in vivo without viral vectors


A Belgian company is looking for a new method / product to transfect plasmid DNA into eukaryotic cells in vivo (in animals / human) without the use of viral vectors or apparatus. The method should work in muscle cells and other tissues. The company is able to perform research & development if the development is not finalized. Different kind of agreements; commercial agreement with technical support, license agreement or research agreement, can be considered depending on the level of developme

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

Expertise / knowledge in production of small quantities of the product is sought. Patent, patent pending or possibility to file a patent to cover the product / method is also sought.

Partner sought

Academic partner or research organization is sought. The partner could be able to provide first proof of concept and help in the development / industrial production.


The aim of the method / product is to transfect plasmid DNA into cells in vivo and especially in muscle cells without the use of viral vectors and without using a specific apparatus (as an electroporator). The product can be a recombinant protein, chemical product... It should not be toxic since it is planned to use it in vivo (including humans). Production costs should be reduced in order to be competitive compared to the production of viral vectors. The method should be compatible with usual method of injections. If development is not finalized, the company can perform additional tests and R&D (alone or in collaboration). Commercial agreement with technical support, license agreement or research agreement can be considered.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
