When it comes to cancer, there’s no shortage of potential drug targets — many molecules are thrown out of whack when tumors develop. But finding a drug that specifically works against these aberrant molecules is another task entirely. Now, a group led by Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center scientists has designed a small protein from scratch that specifically blocks a protein known as TEAD that plays a role in many different cancers.
