Rethinking and rigor brings promising protein for cancer therapy

20 August, 2023

The elucidation of the role of a critical protein in cell biology is paving the way for alternative cancer treatments. By refuting recent challenges that threatened to invalidate their work, a team of KAUST researchers investigating the protein has cleared the way for the development of targeted drugs.

Targeted therapy is a vital form of cancer treatment; identifying the druggable disease-relevant protein targets will enable us to successfully develop more targeted drugs, says Ph.D. student Samah Al-Harthi.
