The Need for a Preclinical Therapeutics Unit
Drs. Jiang and Kuchenbauer will explore the therapeutic potential of novel drugs alone as well as in combination with established treatments in state-of-the-art PDX models. The PTU will thus help to overcome the current gap in fast-tracking the translation of basic discoveries into preclinical and Phase 1 studies in patients and serve as a magnet to attract expanded partnerships with large pharmaceutical companies.
