Since our inception in 2015, cc-TDI has pushed two drugs into three clinical trials to treat childhood cancer.

MEC Biology and Drug Discovery Update

A dedicated research team

Our research team is exploring and testing state-of-the-art treatment options for the most urgent issues facing children with cancer. 

Working in our own freestanding research institution allows us to act swiftly and nimbly to achieve results—bringing cost control, speed, purpose, and focus to translate effective treatments into the clinic. To get there, we perform basic science and translational research in our industrial modern lab site (a paint factory remodeled by Nike as an off-site creative space), adjacent to the Silicon Forest in Oregon.
