Deer­field bankrolls an $80M re­search cen­ter at Dana-Far­ber de­vot­ed to pro­tein degra­da­tion

In just the lat­est ex­am­ple of how hot the whole pro­tein degra­da­tion field has grown over the last 2 years, Dana-Far­ber and Deer­field have struck a deal to col­lab­o­rate on an $80 mil­lion ini­tia­tive aimed at cre­at­ing a new pipeline of ther­a­pies through what they’re billing as a “next-gen­er­a­tion pro­tein de­grad­er plat­form.”

Their new Cen­ter for Pro­tein Degra­da­tion at Dana-Far­ber is be­ing led by Nathanael Gray and Er­ic Fis­ch­er, with the first mon­ey com­ing from Deer­field, which has been bankrolling a va­ri­ety of dis­cov­ery deals.
