Adding Cell Types Supports Drug Discovery of Disease-Modifying Therapies for Neurodegenerative Diseases and Triggues U.S. $6 M Payment to Evotec
Hamburg, Germany, January 7, 2020 – Evotec SE (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: EVT, MDAX/TecDAX, ISIN: DE0005664809) announced today that the Company received a US$ 6 m payment from Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE:BMY) following the decision to expand the collaboration to include additional cell lines.
