Translation Control Therapeutics, the first platform for the discovery of small molecule drugs that control mRNA translation
mRNA translation modulators -
a novel target space
Tremendous opportunities - unique advantages
novel target space
Our platform identifies small molecules that selectively modulate the mRNA translation of target proteins. The novel target space enables the discovery of drugs that can either decrease or increase the production of proteins in a tissue selective manner.
Specifically decrease or increase the mRNA translation of target proteins
Tissues use different regulatory proteins for the same mRNA allowing for selective Translation Control
Our pipeline programs are in Fibrosis (Collagen type I translation inhibitors), RSV (inhibiting the production of viral proteins by host cell ribosomes), Oncology (C-Myc translation inhibitors), Huntington’s Disease (monitoring mutant Huntingtin translation pausing) and Repeat Associated Diseases (translation malfunctions).
$30 million in upfront payments, $14 million in research funding, up to $1.05 billion in milestones and low to mid single-digit tiered royalties on sales of any Lilly products resulting from the collaboration.
