Our lead compound, KZR-616, a selective inhibitor of the immunoproteasome, is in early-stage clinical trials. In addition, we have multiple drug discovery programs targeting protein secretion to include multi-indication small molecule programs that take aim at known and novel therapeutic targets subject to protein homeostasis. This position provides an exciting opportunity for major scientific and strategic roles in the research and development of novel therapies for serious diseases.
