Support for our R&D work on degraders

Nov 29, 2022

We recently completed the FIRST TEAM project aiming at establishing targeted protein degradation in bacteria and we filed a patent application on our method for protein knockdowns using peptide degraders.

The University of Warsaw Technology Transfer Centre (UOTT) awarded us with financial support in the III Grant Competition (III Konkurs o Grant) for our project "Chimeryczny antybiotyk małocząsteczkowy oparty o zasadę celowanej degradacji białek". The award of 40 000 PLN net will contribute to synthesis and testing of new chimeric compounds as potential antibiotics based on targeted protein degradation.

This mini-grant award also marks the beginning of our collaboration with Dr Lindon Moodie from the Uppsala University, who helps us design and synthesize potential degrader compounds,
