In utilizing Tempus’ sophisticated approach, the partnership will originally focus to verify Zentalis’ WEE1 inhibitor, ZN-c3, and its DNA damage response pathway in inherently distinct patient populations.

We look forward to seeing our platform's full capabilities to meet the ever-growing needs of the target population with cancer."
