Celgene partners with Vividion Therapeutics on drug research

6th March 2018

Celgene has announced the formation of a new strategic research collaboration with the biotechnology company Vividion Therapeutics.

The multi-year collaboration will focus on the identification and development of unique small molecules against targets for a range of oncology, inflammatory and neurodegenerative indications.

Through this work, the companies are seeking to advance new small molecules that function through the ubiquitin proteasome system, modulating specific protein levels to deliver therapeutic gains.

This will be accomplished by taking advantage of Vividion's platform for identifying ligands and drug candidates against a selected list of high-value difficult-to-drug targets. It will mark the first time that protein-drug interactions have been precisely assessed directly in native biological systems.

Rupert Vessey, president of research and early development at Celgene, said: "This collaboration will provide both companies with the opportunity for a comprehensive, accelerated drug discovery approach to develop first-in-class therapeutics in areas with high potential impact for patients."
