Project Violet Exploration: The Science

Come investigate the many elements of Project Violet!

Science in Action

The Science

Project Violet’s innovative research uses nature as its guide. Many organisms produce tiny proteins called peptides that are small enough, stable enough and specific enough to deliver cancer drugs. The team modifies these molecules to generate versions that target some of the most treatment-resistant malignancies. These molecules are poised to spark a radical leap forward in cancer medicine.
