About Nurix Therapeutics
Nurix discovers drugs that harness the body’s natural process to control protein levels. Our drugs control ubiquitin E3 ligases, the key enzymes responsible for protein breakdown in human cells, as a unique therapeutic approach to treat a broad range of diseases. Our initial focus is on developing drugs as treatments for hematologic cancers and immune-mediated diseases including immuno-oncology therapeutics for cancer. Nurix was founded by internationally-recognized experts in ligase biology and immunology and is funded by leading life science investors Third Rock Ventures and The Column Group.
