REVOLUTION Medicines Announces Presentations at Scientific Meetings in Third and Fourth Quarters of 2018

Progress reported in oncology drug discovery programs

Redwood City, CA – November 13, 2018 – REVOLUTION Medicines, Inc. today announced presentations describing scientific research progress across multiple oncology drug discovery programs.

“In 2018 we’ve made significant progress in both cancer biology and drug discovery toward our goal of translating frontier oncology targets on behalf of cancer patients,” said Mark A. Goldsmith, M.D., Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of REVOLUTION Medicines. “This preclinical work spans multiple elusive cancer targets including SHP2, mTORC1/4EBP1 and oncogenic forms of mutant KRAS.  The discoveries provide the mechanistic foundations for our development strategies in the clinic based on monotherapy directed against molecularly-defined tumors, enhancement of anti-tumor immune responses, and therapeutic drug combinations.”

About REVOLUTION Medicines

The mission of REVOLUTION Medicines is to discover and develop new drugs directed toward frontier oncology targets for cancer patients. Frontier targets include proteins that drive the growth and survival of cancer but carry atypical structural or regulatory features requiring unconventional drug discovery strategies. The company brings together deep talent in cancer biology and small molecule drug discovery supported by advanced chemical synthesis, computational and assay technologies to master these targets. Seasoned translational and development scientists help to fulfill the company’s commitment to precision oncology.

Headquartered in Redwood City, Calif. at the intersection of Silicon Valley and the birthplace of biotechnology, REVOLUTION Medicines is a private company financed by top-tier investors.
