Vanderbilt University Key Developments

Boehringer Ingelheim Gmbh Expands Collaboration with Vanderbilt University to Tackle Some of the Most Difficult-To-Treat Cancers

Boehringer Ingelheim announced a new collaboration with Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee. The multi-year program complements an already existing collaboration by focusing on the research and development of small molecule compounds targeting the protein SOS (Son Of Sevenless). This molecule activates KRAS, a molecular switch that plays a central role in the onset of some of the deadliest cancers. The collaboration combines pioneering research in the laboratory of Stephen W. Fesik, Orrin H. Ingram II professor in cancer research at Vanderbilt University, with the unique expertise and strength of Boehringer Ingelheim in drug discovery and clinical development. The new collaboration adds to an ongoing joint project with Vanderbilt University initiated in 2015 that achieved two major milestones by identifying lead compounds that bind to KRAS with high affinities. These discoveries raise the prospect of developing novel cancer treatment options based on molecules that are able to block this critical cancer driver.
