Professor Itzhaki is joined at PolyProx Therapeutics by serial Cambridge biotech entrepreneurs Kevin Moulder as Chief Operating Officer and Andrew Sandham as Executive Chairman. PolyProx Therapeutics will develop a new class of drugs, called Polyproxin™ molecules, that are able to selectively target tumour cells and trigger the natural degradation machinery contained within the cell to arrest tumour growth.
