Webinar: Targeted Protein Degradation Virtual Symposium

July 15, 2020

Event Navigation

Bio-Techne is delighted to welcome leading scientists to talk about their recent research and perspectives in the exciting, fast-moving field of Targeted Protein Degradation.

The symposium will bring together insights on:

  • Critical assessment of the field
  • PROTAC® design, discovery and development
  • Innovative new research tools
  • Expanding the E3 ligase toolbox

We hope you will join us for what will be a fascinating and informative symposium.

Targeted Protein Degradation (TPD) is a technology that harnesses small molecule modalities (molecular glues, PROTAC® Degraders, SNIPERS etc) to achieve selective knockdown of target proteins within cells.
Heterobifunctional Degraders represent an exciting new modality, repurposing small molecule ligands to achieve selective degradation (knock-down) of target proteins and offering the potential to expand the druggable proteome.

PROTAC® is a registered trademark of Arvinas Operations, Inc., and is used under license.
