Institute for Applied Cancer Science

Our Mission

Our mission is to apply scientific knowledge of mechanisms driving tumorigenesis into the development of impactful cancer therapies for specific cancer patients. 

To this end, the Institute for Applied Cancer Science (IACS) made significant progress towards establishing a self-sustaining internal drug discovery program to identify high-quality clinical candidates against unprecedented targets, for orphan indications and high medical needs. 

The institute’s goal is to deliver innovative investigational new drug molecules into proof-of-concept clinical trials in those patients most likely to benefit from these therapies.
