Ribon Therapeutics is a biotechnology company pioneering the discovery of new cancer medicines that target monoPARP proteins, critical regulators of cancer survival mechanisms.
The diverse and central functions that PARPs, or poly(ADP-ribose) polymerases, play in cancer cell survival pathways are just emerging, and many of the seminal discoveries in the field have been made by Ribon’s scientific founders. By combining insights from our founders and an experienced management team, Ribon is building a proprietary drug discovery platform to investigate the molecular action and biological function of a subset of the PARP protein family, called monoPARPs. Based on its platform, Ribon is creating a pipeline of innovative medicines that selectively target monoPARPs to treat cancer and may have the potential to impact other diseases. The company is backed by prominent life science investors, including The Column Group, U.S. Venture Partners, Deerfield Management and Osage University Partners.
