Welcome to Moderna United Kingdom
So, what is mRNA?
Messenger RNA (mRNA) already exists in your body. It carries a “message” - instructions that direct your cells what to do.
Fighting disease differently
mRNA medicines fight diseases in a different way than traditional medicine by prompting your immune system to create the tools to treat or prevent disease.
We believe that if mRNA can treat one disease, it can treat many diseases. We will use mRNA to treat diseases for which there are currently no treatments.
Helping more people
mRNA medicine contains no animal products or preservatives, making medicine accessible for as many people as possible.
More medicines, faster
Our platform enables rapid design, research and testing of multiple mRNAs, within days. Our novel production methods allow us to get medicines to more people, faster.
Meet Darius Hughes
It normally takes 2-3 years to set up a new pharmaceutical affiliate and bring the first product to market. With the COVID-19 pandemic, Darius set up the UK affiliate and recruited the whole UK team, within 9 months, whilst ensuring the vital supply of Modernas COVID-19 vaccine was maintained.
