Targeting Resistant Cancer

Targeting Resistant Cancer

The biological systems that protect healthy cells in our bodies can also protect cancer cells and make them resistant to cancer therapies.

Varsity is developing new treatments that target the systems that protect cancer cells, to find drugs that work synergistically with therapies that aim to directly kill cancer cells, to greatly increase the chance of successful outcomes.

New Small Molecule Therapies

Varsity partners with leading oncology academics in Cambridge, and globally, to identify new targets to address drug resistance and develop new small molecule therapies for several resistant cancers.

Varsity works to transform these novel discoveries into new therapies for patients by supporting the clinical development work needed for their eventual regulatory approval and distribution.

About us

Varsity is ideally placed to use the Cycle Group drug development expertise to support the transformation of world leading oncology research in to life-changing treatments for cancer patients.
