Fully Integrated AAV Engineering and Gene Therapy Company
We are a biotechnology company creating a new class of targeted gene therapies for debilitating and life-threatening genetic disorders in both central nervous system (CNS) and non-CNS indications.
Current gene therapy approaches have shown dramatic efficacy in several rare diseases but are hindered by imprecise targeting. The inability to selectively transduce specific cells and tissues effectively drives administration of higher doses and resulting safety liabilities. We are addressing these concerns with our proprietary adeno-associated virus (AAV) engineering platform that generates capsids optimized to target specific tissues and cells in the disease organ while limiting transduction of tissues and cells not relevant to the target disease.
Through our next-generation AAV platform combined with cargo development and state-of-the-art manufacturing, we are tackling monogenetic and sporadic CNS and non-CNS disorders that have previously been challenging to address.
