Comprehensive Target Discovery and Validation at HDB–WuXi AppTec

Presented by: Shelly (Fang) Zhang, director II, exploration biology team leader, HD Biosciences–WuXi AppTec Novel target discovery and validation are the most crucial steps in successful drug development. Zhang presented her company’s evolving advanced gene manipulation (AGM) program, which is propelled by application of clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) and CRISPR-associated protein_9 (Cas9) technologies. The AGM platform supports target discovery and validation for conventional biologics and new modalities. She highlighted a number of technologies in development and their…

Enabling Pharma and Biotech Innovation Through an Open-Access Platform: Targeted Protein Degradation

Presented by: Dave Madge, vice president, research division, WuXi AppTec Madge described methods that his company applies to identify and evaluate bifunctional molecules that mediate targeted protein degradation (TPD). He pointed out that although much TPD research focuses on proteolysis targeting chimera (PROTAC) compounds, the tools used to identify such molecules also can be used to evaluate the therapeutic potential of other bifunctional molecules. Of particular interest are those that bring “housekeeping proteins” to disease-causing targets. More broadly, researchers are…
