Vanderbilt University Key Developments

Boehringer Ingelheim and Vanderbilt University Join Forces to Develop New Ras Inhibitors for Cancer Treatment

Boehringer Ingelheim announced that it has established a research alliance with Vanderbilt University and the cancer drug discovery laboratory of Professor Stephen W. Fesik and the Orrin H. Ingram. The aim of the new collaboration is the research and development of small molecule inhibitors of oncogenic Ras for the treatment of cancer. Ras is the most frequently mutated oncogene known in cancer with K-Ras being the most commonly mutated form occurring in pancreas, colon, biliary tract and lung adenocarcinomas. Mutations in the Ras family (comprised of H-Ras, N-Ras and K-Ras) are very common, and found in 20 to 30% of all human tumors. Ras has been a particularly difficult protein to target since its discovery in human cancers more than 30 years ago. Under the terms of the agreement, the research capabilities of Vanderbilt University and Boehringer Ingelheim will be brought together in a multi-year research programme focusing on the development of small molecule inhibitors of Ras.
