Af­ter pi­lot project, Take­da inks $500M pact to tap in­to a Ke­van Shokat pro­tégé's co­va­lent small mol­e­cule fish­ing plat­form

As new tech­nolo­gies open up new av­enues to­ward tar­gets wide­ly con­sid­ered un­drug­gable by small mol­e­cules, Take­da is tak­ing a chance on a low-pro­file drug dis­cov­ery play­er with promis­es of up to $500 mil­lion in biobucks.

Over the next two years, Sun­ny­vale, CA-based Brid­Gene will de­ploy its chem­i­cal pro­teomics-based plat­form for five pro­grams against tar­gets of in­ter­est, start­ing with one im­pli­cat­ed in neu­rode­gen­er­a­tive dis­eases.
