Black Diamond Therapeutics Provides Update on GBM Program and Presents Pre-Clinical Data at the 2020 SNO Annual Meeting - Seite 2
“Glioblastoma places an enormous burden on patients and their families, and we’re encouraged by these pre-clinical data that support BDTX-1535’s potential to improve treatment options for those impacted by GBM. The advancement of BDTX-1535 into early development is a critical step in our pursuit of a truly innovative approach for the treatment of this devastating disease,” said David M. Epstein, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Black Diamond Therapeutics. “We remain committed to the broad deployment of our proprietary MAP platform to produce novel MasterKey inhibitor therapies for a range of genetically defined diseases.”

Black Diamond is built upon a deep understanding of cancer genetics, protein structure and function, and medicinal chemistry. The Company’s proprietary technology platform, Mutation-Allostery-Pharmacology (MAP) platform, is designed to allow Black Diamond to analyze population-level genetic sequencing data to identify oncogenic mutations that promote cancer across tumor types, group these mutations into families, and develop a single small molecule therapy in a tumor-agnostic manner that targets a specific family of mutations. Black Diamond was founded by David M. Epstein, Ph.D. and Elizabeth Buck, Ph.D., and, beginning in 2017, together with Versant Ventures, began building the MAP platform and chemistry discovery engine.
