Innovative Clinical Studies
Working together Acerta and AstraZeneca are focused on Innovative Clinical Strategies to enable us to combine our extensive oncology portfolio of cancer therapies.
Our multiparametric phospho-proteomic platform enables the characterization of activated signaling networks within complex tissues and in discrete cell subsets.
Our Translational Medicine (TM) team are actively implementing MRD endpoints in our clinical trials to understand what treatments can drive to MRD undetectable levels.
Research in the Netherlands
At our recently expanded site at Oss in the Netherlands, we have core capabilities in target identification, target validation, lead generation and compound optimization. The Oss research centre is based in the heart of the Pivot Park Biotechnology Campus and has established relationships with both academic and commercial partners in Europe.
