Careers at Loxo


About Loxo Oncology: Loxo Oncology is dedicated to developing highly selective medicines for patients with genetically defined cancers. We base our approach on two scientific trends: the increasing use of genetic testing in cancer clinical medicine and improving chemistry approaches to building highly selective inhibitors against single targets in the cancer cell.  

Some people develop cancers that are caused by a single inappropriate DNA change, known as “oncogenic drivers.” When a genetic test identifies a patient with an oncogenic driver, there should be a personalized medicine to address this error in the DNA that is leading to the cancer. At Loxo Oncology, we are developing a pipeline of highly selective drugs that inhibit oncogenic drivers in cancer.

/Loxô/ is a term from Greek mythology that refers to the trajectory of an arrow, a fitting metaphor for our approach to developing precise, targeted therapies against genetically defined cancers.
