BOSTON, MA and HANGZHOU, China – 20 September 2021 – Ranok Therapeutics (Hangzhou) Co. Ltd., an emerging biopharmaceutical company focused on developing breakthrough therapies for cancer and other serious diseases, today announced that the company will present at the 19th Annual Discovery on Target conference in Boston, MA, September 27-30, 2021.

Kevin P. Foley, Ph.D., Co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Ranok Therapeutics, will present a talk entitled “Tumor-Targeted Protein Degradation via Chaperones”, as part of the conference’s PROTACs and Targeted Protein Degradation track.  

Ranok has developed a proprietary and innovative targeted protein degradation (TPD) platform technology, CHAMPTM (Chaperone-mediated Protein Degradation), that leverages Ranok’s founders’ expertise in protein homeostasis to take advantage of the cellular chaperone network, potentially improving drug safety and efficacy due to selective targeting of disease tissues. The Company announced a $40 million Series B financing in August 2021, bringing the total raised to date to over $50 million in funding.
