PEP-Therapy is a French biotechnology company developing first-in-class peptides as targeted therapies in oncology based on the Company’s innovative Cell Penetrating and Interfering Peptides (CP&IP) technology. These innovative molecules penetrate cells and specifically block relevant intracellular protein-protein interactions, leading to the inhibition of key pathological mechanisms without altering physiological mechanisms.
