Advanced Drug Technologies for the Treatment of Ovarian Cancer

The Cluster for Epigenomic and Antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) Therapeutics (CEAT) aims to advance a group of novel epigenetic drugs and ADCs to tackle ovarian cancer development and progression. CEAT is part of the Welsh Government and Industry backed SMART Expertise project part-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)

CEAT project key facts:

  • 3 year ERDF funded, SMART Expertise project

  • Total project value worth over £2.6m

  • Collaboration consisting of 6 Partners

  • Swansea University (lead), GSK, Axis Bioservice, Cytiva, Porvair Sciences and Bruker

The CEAT project will help to prevent and treat ovarian cancer by:

  • Developing techniques to identify patients that will benefit from targeted epigenetic and non-epigenetic drug treatments

  • Advancing novel epigenetic drugs using cross cutting technology approaches.

  • Generating novel ADCs that are effective against ovarian cancer

The CEAT Project Launch took place in Swansea University on 4th February 2019
