Structural Biology-Driven Drug Discovery: Ray Stevens on The Long Run

Today’s guest on the Long Run is Ray Stevens. Ray is the CEO of ShouTi. It’s a company that uses advanced structural biology technologies like cryo-EM images, and computational techniques, to discover small molecule drugs. The idea is to come up with orally available medicines that can build off the biological insights gained from protein or peptide drugs, but replace...

Aiming High, With a Team

Climbing Mt. Everest changed my life. The world’s highest mountain required digging deep — physically, mentally, emotionally. That was four years ago. That original climb was a success, raising $340,000 for cancer research at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. But what came next meant more. The climb opened my mind to new ways of making a contribution, in addition...

Biotech Takes a Stand

Not long ago, biotech leaders steered clear of commenting on the issues of the day. Politics was limited to certain vested interests like drug pricing, science funding, and FDA regulation. Then came COVID-19 and the racial justice reckoning. Staring these terrible things in the face, people began to think more about their roles in the workplace, and in the community....

TR’s 7th Anniversary: Thank You

Timmerman Report is 7 years old today. On Feb. 2, 2015, I rode my bike to the office on a wet Seattle morning and turned on the lights. I thought there was a need for clear, probing, contextual biotech journalism. It was a leap of faith, like any entrepreneurial venture. I couldn’t have predicted 90 percent of what came next....

Targeting Integrins With Small Molecules: Praveen Tipirneni on The Long Run

Today’s guest on The Long Run is Praveen Tipirneni. Praveen is the CEO of Waltham, Mass.-based Morphic Therapeutic. Morphic Therapeutic is developing oral small molecule drugs aimed at integrin targets. There’s some fascinating biology and computational technology underpinning this work, which I discussed a couple years ago on The Long Run with Morphic scientific founder Tim Springer. Just to review...
