BI teams with Vanderbilt U to pursue novel cancer attack against KRAS

Mutations in a gene called KRAS are found in up to 25% of lung cancers, 45% of colon tumors and 90% of pancreatic cancers. Yet after three decades of research, no effective treatments targeting KRAS mutations have been developed. Germany’s Boehringer Ingelheim hopes to turn around that streak of bad luck via a partnership it has formed with Vanderbilt University.
