A passionate team

Together we are pioneering a powerful new approach to discover and develop novel cancer medicines, building a road map to cures that will transform the lives of patients and their families.

Tango is a team of passionate problem solvers. Our discovery efforts begin and end with patients. We are driven by urgency and compassion, empowered by collaboration, courage and a culture of excellence – determined to push boundaries with innovative science and bold decisions.

Together, we will discover transformative drugs for people with cancer by leveraging the classic principles of synthetic lethality in innovative ways. Our approaches are uncovering novel vulnerabilities in cancers with specific tumor suppressor gene loss and undruggable oncogenes, as well as discovering drug targets that reverse the ability of cancer cells to avoid immune destruction.

We’re a team. And we’re all in for exciting science and changing lives.

Here are our core values:

Urgency + Compassion

Change the lives
of people
with cancer

Spirit + Resilience

Embrace individuality
and face challenges

Courage + Leadership

Push boundaries with
innovative science
and bold decisions

Take time to dance
