STAGE R&D in oncology - Evaluation of innovative therapeutic peptides for aggressive cancers treatment

Date de mise à jour de l’offre

PEP-Therapy :

PEP-Therapy is a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing first-in-class peptides as targeted therapies in oncology based on the Company’s innovative Cell Penetrating and Interfering Peptides (CP&IP) technology. These innovative molecules penetrate cells and specifically block relevant intracellular protein-protein interactions, leading to the inhibition of key pathological mechanisms without altering physiological mechanisms. PEP-010, our lead product, is in Phase Ia/b clinical trials for the treatment of advanced solid tumors. PEP-Therapy was founded in 2014 and builds on research results from Institut Curie and Sorbonne University. For further information: www.pep-therapy.com
