Conformational Blockade of RAS in Cancer

Complex-Directed Therapies to Actively Prevent Resistance

RAS has the highest frequency of mutation of any oncogene in human cancer. Quanta Therapeutics is pioneering allosteric modulation to directly restore conformational control of active RAS signaling at the cell membrane to inhibit the full scope of RAS-driven cancer types. Our team applies deep biologic insight, unique protein conformation detection technology and sophisticated medicinal chemistry expertise to develop novel small molecules as first-in-class precision medicines breaking the resistance paradigms of targeted therapy in oncology.
