Prof Paul Workman - Institute of Cancer Research, UK

“Prof Paul Workman discusses how the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) is working to speed up the discovery and development of drugs acting on new cancer drug targets.


Although cancer genome sequencing and other large-scale efforts are uncovering many potential new treatment targets, these are not always pursued by major pharmaceutical companies due to the high risk associated with early stage research.


Prof Workman explains how ICR, as a non-profit academic group, has been able to successfully discover prototype drugs acting on high risk potential targets and progress them to the stage where they can be taken up by pharmaceutical companies.”
