Our technology is not only innovative, but may bring breakthroughs in treating severe diseases through addressing molecular targets which are so far considered untreatable. We would like to thank the jury for selecting our company and all the investors for their trust and support – this recognition is a great additional motivator for the whole Captor team and confirms our focus on innovation to further develop our projects - Thomas Shepherd, CEO of Captor Therapeutics, said.

      Recently, Captor Therapeutics has reported several positive results from its ongoing research and development work. These include information on the effective degradation of MCL- 1 protein by the drug candidate CT-03 and promising results of preclinical proof-of-concept in-vivo studies that demonstrate the very significant anti-tumour activity of two lead compounds being developed under project CT-01. Captor Therapeutics has also opened a state-of-the-art Proteomics Laboratory for advanced analyses based on mass spectrometry.
