Visit Capella to learn more about the scientific progress we are making as we translate the science of RNAi into human clinical experience and ultimately towards the development of innovative medicines for patients.
"Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere" — Albert Einstein
We are a growing biopharmaceutical company with deep resources focused on a remarkable biological breakthrough called RNAi that could be transformative for medicine and could dramatically improve the lives of patients. We have demonstrated the ability to harness RNAi for therapeutic gene silencing, including the first-ever human proof of concept for an RNAi therapeutic and we won't stop there.
We are a growing community of scientific and business leaders and we thrive on interacting and challenging each other (almost all the time).
We come together from dozens of countries. We speak over 20 languages. We have diverse educations, backgrounds, skill sets, lives, and turns of phrase. We listen. We laugh (out loud) at ourselves. We know what to take seriously. We work incredibly hard (because we want to). We do many things at a time, but have a resolute focus on creating new medicines.

Through various company events such as the scientific seminars or our journal club, I am always encouraged to expand my knowledge in a variety of areas. While I could easily spend my entire day in the lab only focusing on my own projects, I am encouraged to explore all the exciting things that are happening around me. Also, I work with some really experienced scientists whose doors are always open if I have any questions or simply want to pick their brains."
