It was reported yesterday that Germany-based Boehringer Ingelheim has extended its collaboration with the University of Dundee to develop new medicines that target and destroy cancer causing proteins.

The agreement partners Professor Alessio Ciulli, one of the pioneers in the field of Proteolysis targeting chimeras, based in the School of Life Sciences at Dundee, with Boehringer Ingelheim's pharmaceutical expertise.

Darryl B. McConnell, PhD, Senior Vice President and Research Site Head, Boehringer Ingelheim, Vienna, Austria, said, 'PROTACs are a disruptive therapeutic modality which are bringing previously deemed undruggable targets within reach. Our collaboration will continue to work to bring this new class of medicines to patients. The joint team is making rapid progress and have successfully reached the first collaboration milestone setting a solid basis for achieving our goals.'
