We evaluate and, when appropriate, enter into collaborations to expand the Company’s capabilities and product offerings into a range of diseases and potentially to more broadly accelerate the development and commercialisation of ddRNAi therapeutics.


Therapeutic product partnering/out-licensing to pharmaceutical partners;

  • Benitec utilises its in-house research and development resources to discover, evaluate (in preclinical and clinical studies), a range of novel ddRNAi therapeutics. The company is currently focused on several therapeutic areas – oncology, infectious disease, ocular disease, and orphan indications associated with rare genetic mutations.
  • Benitec may seek to partner these therapeutic programs with leading pharmaceutical partners in the relevant disease areas as they reach key pre-clinical or clinical development milestones.

R&D collaborations and with pharmaceutical partners and specialised biotech’s;

  • Benitec has unique expertise in developing ddRNAi therapeutics utilising a range of viral vectors, including novel viral vectors for ocular disease, as well as evaluating non-viral delivery platforms. This expertise, combined with internal capabilities for process development and small scale manufacturing is a powerful drug discovery/development platform.
  • Benitec is therefore ideally placed to become the partner of choice for pharmaceutical companies looking to enter the field of non-viral and viral vector-based gene therapy and gene silencing therapeutics as a differentiated approach to disease targets. Such partnerships may include de novo discovery and development designed to silence (and replace if required) the partner’s chosen protein target(s) within a single therapeutic to provide; a) more effective drug targeting, b) “in-situ” therapeutic expression, and c) potent “single administration” multi-target therapies.
