Patients are in desperate need for drugs that are efficacious and limited in toxicity; new targets in the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway offer these opportunities. Dr. Anderson will be presenting his latest findings at the fourth-annual Ubiquitin Drug Discovery & Diagnostics conference in Philadelphia, to be held from July 23rd to 25th at the Four Seasons Hotel. He will speak on proteasome inhibitors as well as USP7 inhibitors, a target developed by Progenra, Inc. (http://www.progenra.com).
Over the last two decades, Dr. Anderson has focused his translational research studies on multiple myeloma. His team led both preclinical and clinical trials of novel proteasome inhibitors that offer great promise to improve patient outcomes in hematologic malignancies and solid tumors. In 2011, Dr. Anderson was presented with the David A. Karnofsky Memorial Award for his significant clinical research in multiple myeloma.
The conference will enable members of the academic, pharmaceutical, biotech and business communities to exchange ideas and listen to world experts in ubiquitin-based drug discovery, development and diagnostics.
