CRT lets Aura use its cancer-targeting peptides

Abstract:
Aura Biosciences will use Cancer Research Technology's (CRT) cancer-targeting peptides as a result of being granted a licence.

These peptides bind to a protein on the surface of the cell called integrin avb6, a protein complex found in high levels on many tumour cells but absent in most normal tissues.

By seeking out this protein and binding to it, the peptides can deliver cancer treatments directly to the site with increased precision and reduced side effects.
