Cancer therapy and treatment have become one of the most researched and highly funded therapeutic areas, with many organizations tackling treatment in this area of disease, given its high incidence within the population globally.
Spectrum of Oncology
Cancer medicines and drug treatments are used to target mutations or shore up the immune system of patients, and have greatly increased the effectiveness of treatment for patients suffering from various forms of cancer, lengthening the life expectancy for many.
At Charnwood Discovery, we work across the entire spectrum of oncology and immuno-oncology drug discovery, with activities in target identification and lead optimisation through to candidate nomination and clinical positioning. Our teams work together across a range of disciplines to provide tailored solutions to our clients in the areas of oncology and immuno-oncology.
