Von Hoff, MD, Chief, distinguished professor and director of clinical translational research division at the Translational Genomics Research Institute and Chief Scientific Officer for US Oncology; Mark Murcko, PhD, former Chief Technology Officer at Vertex Pharmaceuticals; Thomas J. Lynch, Jr., MD, Director of the Yale Cancer Center and Physician-in-chief at Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven;  Richard Ulevitch, Venture Partner 5AM  and Professor and  Chairman Emeritus of the Department of Immunology at The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, California; and Peter Farina, PhD, executive in residence at Canaan Partners and former Senior Vice-President of Development at Boehringer Ingelheim.

Arvinas worked with the Yale Office of Cooperative Research (OCR) to secure intellectual property protection for the technology.

"The Arvinas team has lined up an impressive slate of supporters of the unique technology that comes out of Yale University," noted John Soderstrom, PhD, Managing Director of the Office of Cooperative Research at Yale and a member of Arvinas' Board of Directors. "Degrading proteins that are driving disease has the potential to bring
