MODULATING ONCOGENE TRANSLATION TO DRAMATICALLY IMPROVE CANCER PATIENT OUTCOMES
ABOUT PIC THERAPEUTICS
PIC Therapeutics is a biotechnology company focused on fundamentally changing how we treat cancer by developing a new generation of therapeutics based on the modulation of RNA translation.
Our precision-based therapeutics target the “master switch” of cancer signaling pathways, selectively blocking oncogene protein production by modulating the Pre-Initiation Complex (PIC) that drives their mRNA translation. PIC Therapeutics' selective approach has the potential to simultaneously modulate multiple oncogenic drivers leading to a powerful new generation of cancer-treating therapeutics.
PIC Therapeutics was founded on the seminal work of Dr. Gerhard Wagner, a professor at Harvard Medical School world-renowned for his scientific expertise in protein structure and his research on interactions of eukaryotic translation initiation factors (eIFs).
PIC Therapeutics, led by Founding CEO Sun Altbach, was launched to translate these discoveries into small molecule precision therapeutics to benefit cancer patients.
