mRNA: A New Approach to Medicine
Using mRNA as a medicine is a fundamentally different approach than treating disease with other drug classes.
It plays a fundamental role in human biology. mRNA is the set of instructions by which cells make all proteins and send them to various parts of the body.
mRNA medicines take advantage of normal biological processes to express proteins and create a desired therapeutic effect. This enables the potential treatment of a broad spectrum of diseases, many of which cannot be addressed with current technologies.
We believe mRNA has the potential to transform how medicines are discovered, developed and manufactured – at a breadth, speed and scale not common in our industry.
