Arvinas, Inc. New Haven , CT 06501

Posted 3 months ago

Arvinas is a pharmaceutical company focused on developing new small molecules known as PROTAC (PROteolysis TArgeting Chimeras) protein degraders aimed at degrading disease-causing cellular proteins via proteolysis. Based on innovative research conducted at Yale University by Dr. Craig Crews, Founder and Chief Scientific Advisor, the company is translating natural protein degradation approaches into novel drugs for the treatment of cancer and other diseases. The proprietary PROTAC -based drug paradigm induces protein degradation, rather than protein inhibition, using the ubiquitin proteasome system and offers the advantage of potentially targeting "undruggable" as well as "druggable" elements of the proteome. This greatly expands the ability to create drugs for many new, previously unapproachable targets.

Arvinas is at exciting stage in its growth as a company. The company has initiated its first Phase 1 study for ARV-110 for patients with prostate cancer and expects its next drug candidate, ARV-471 for patients with breast cancer, to enter the clinic during 2019. Also in 2019, Arvinas expects to present compelling new data on its neurodegeneration program (tau). Arvinas is growing rapidly, having roughly doubled in size in 2018 while also completing its initial public offering (IPO; NASDAQ:ARVN). For more information, visit
