- Approximately €400million investment annually to accelerate end-to-end R&D of next-generation vaccines, fully financed through resource reallocation
- Focus on innovating mRNA vaccines beyond pandemic to routine use in diseases with high unmet need
- Expected minimum of six clinical candidates by 2025
The Center of Excellence will enable acceleration of the vaccines mRNA portfolio developed through the Translate Bio collaboration established in 2018 and expanded in 2020.
“This massive new investment clearly puts us in the race to develop next-generation vaccines where mRNA technologies can have greatest impact.” said Thomas Triomphe, Executive Vice President, Global Head of Sanofi Pasteur. “While mRNA won’t be the solution for every infectious disease, its translation into routine prevention could have immense impact for many unmet public health needs. It now becomes a critical new technology in our comprehensive vaccinestoolbox, one which could help reinvent health protection in the future.”
Sanofi is committed to rapidly establishing an industry-competitive mRNA platform and is working with our partners and all relevant stakeholders, internally and externally, to achieve this objective.sanofi.com
