Pitt innovators were issued 11 U.S. patents in January 2022.
Featured patent: 11,214,560 “Modulators of p97 AAA Atpase Activity”
Inhibition of p97 ATPase, a molecular cleanup mechanism, triggers downstream cellular effects, including the suppression of cellular proliferation that makes cancer such a dangerous disease. Pitt innovators led by Donna Huryn, Professor of Pharmaceutical Science, and Peter Wipf, Distinguished University Professor, Department of Chemistry, along with colleagues at Duke University and the University of Pennsylvania, have discovered p97 inhibitors that may lead to new treatments for cancer and possibly also neurodegeneration and genetic disorders involving p97 mutations.
