We are advancing two natural product projects towards the clinic: englerins for kidney cancer and Ewings sarcoma, and schweinfurthins for CNS tumors and other NF1-dependent conditions. These natural products both have unique mechanisms of action. In addition, our group builds and maintains the library of chemical diversity with which the MTL conducts high throughput screening campaigns based on CCR-identified molecular targets.
