Welcome to the Induced Proximity-Based Drug Discovery Summit
What is induced proximity?
Induced proximity is a novel approach to tackle difficult to drug targets and diseases through the development of medicines that act like a molecular matchmaker by bringing two things together.
Instead of trying to grapple with difficult targets on their own, induced proximity medicines mobilize biological mechanisms (effectors) to do the heavy lifting. These biological mechanisms have a specific purpose in the body that can be co-opted to alter a disease-causing protein (target). While induced proximity medicines can be complex and may pose new development challenges, they have important advantages over their conventional medicine counterparts.

While PROTACs or more drug-like molecular glues for targeted protein degradation are leading the way for induced proximity medicines, there are many additional mechanisms one could envision which makes the future potential of these drugs staggering.
As the community strives to unlock the vast potential of induced proximity drug discovery, this is the specific online scientific and networking forum set to provide you with actionable insights to allow you to stay ahead of the curve, and develop novel therapies for paradigm-changing multispecific drugs of the future.
