BOSTON & HANGZHOU, China

Ranok Therapeutics (Hangzhou) Co. Ltd., an emerging biopharmaceutical company focused on developing breakthrough therapies for cancer and other serious diseases, today announced an agreement with Pfizer Inc. to apply and evaluate Ranok’s CHAMP™ platform technology on an undisclosed cancer target. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Ranok has developed a proprietary and innovative targeted protein degradation (TPD) platform technology, CHAMP™ (Chaperone-mediated Protein Degradation), which leverages Ranok’s founders’ expertise in protein homeostasis to take advantage of the cellular chaperone network, potentially improving drug safety and efficacy due to selective targeting of disease tissues.

“We are very pleased to work with Pfizer to explore the application of CHAMP™ to an emerging cancer drug target,” said Kevin P. Foley, Ph.D., Co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Ranok Therapeutics. “This represents our first pharmaceutical company research relationship and is an important step forward in establishing CHAMP™ as a preferred technology in the rapidly-growing field of targeted protein degradation. We look forward to uncovering new benefits of CHAMP™ through this research.”

This evaluation agreement builds upon Ranok’s recent momentum, including its $40 million Series B financing in August 2021.
