We advised Rappta Therapeutics, a private biotech company, in venture capital Series A financing in which the company raised 9 million euros in funding for the development of anti-cancer Protein Phosphatase 2A (PP2A) drugs. The unique phosphatase technology platform offers a new paradigm in oncology.
