RNAi: A REVOLUTION IN BIOLOGY BUILT ON NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING RESEARCH
RNA interference (RNAi) is a breakthrough in understanding how genes are regulated in cells. It also represents a completely new approach to drug discovery and development. The 2006 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine, awarded to Craig Mello and Andrew Fire, recognised the importance of RNAi as a major scientific discovery.
Our pipeline of investigational RNAi therapeutics is focused on diseases with high unmet medical need that fall under 4 Strategic Therapeutic Areas (STArs): genetic medicines, cardio-metabolic diseases, infectious diseases, and central nervous system (CNS) and ocular diseases.
Our products approved for patients in the European Union treat hereditary ATTR (hATTR) amyloidosis with polyneuropathy, acute hepatic porphyria (AHP), and primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1). Our therapeutic product candidates in late-stage (Phase 2 – Phase 3) development focus on hereditary ATTR (hATTR) amyloidosis, haemophilia and rare bleeding disorders, hypercholesterolaemia and complement-mediated diseases. We have a number of early-stage programmes in development.
JOIN OUR TEAM
As we pursue our goal of becoming a commercial organization that can independently deliver medicines to patients, we are seeking individuals with diverse skills, experiences, and backgrounds to help us build a world-class team. We are based in Cambridge, USA, with offices in Zug, Switzerland, and Maidenhead, UK, but we are also hiring throughout Europe.
