WIPO Re:Search Project

WIPO Re:Search is bringing innovative medical technologies to the fight against Neglected Tropical Diseases by brokering new research partnerships and sharing knowledge.

WIPO Re:Search

As the Partnership Hub administrator of WIPO Re:Search, BIO Ventures for Global Health (BVGH) facilitates access to intellectual property assets including, pharmaceutical compounds, technologies, know-how and data to advance research and development of products to treat NTDs, TB, and malaria. BVGH proactively examines scientists’ current neglected disease research and proposes novel collaboration opportunities with other Members. BVGH also fields requests from researchers, identifies Member organizations able to fulfill these requests, and helps forge mutually beneficial collaborations with clearly-defined roles, responsibilities, and expectations. The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) manages the WIPO Re:Search Database, a searchable, public database of available intellectual property assets and resources.

WIPO Re:Search provides access to important resources to support organizations that conduct research on treatments for NTDs, ultimately improving the lives of those most in need.

WIPO Re:Search Members include some of the world’s biggest pharmaceutical companies and prestigious academic institutions.

Its main objectives are:

  • Accelerating development of new treatments for malaria, tuberculosis (TB) and Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs).
  • To create partnerships that connect private industry’s assets and resources with qualified academic and nonprofit researchers with novel product discovery or development ideas.
  • Guiding principles to ensure products are available royalty free in least developed countries.
