AskBio’s history-making journey began when our co-founder, Dr. Jude Samulski, discovered how the Adeno-Associated Virus (AAV) could safely deliver corrected genes to cells with genetic defects. Since then, we have been developing foundational AAV technology long before most gene therapy companies existed. Now, with the acquisition of Synpromics and the pioneering promoter and gene control advancements made by Dr. Michael Roberts, AskBio’s AAV platform is significantly enhanced.
Today, we are a multi-dimensional company with the world’s only fully integrated gene therapy platform. We have brought to life some of the industry’s most prolific AAV innovations in capsid design and high-yield AAV production with unparalleled clinical expertise and a promising therapeutic pipeline. Driven by the need to increase access and lower cost, we know the science only matters when we can see a child walk, see, hear, breathe and live a long healthy life through groundbreaking genetic medicine.
AskBio is headquartered in Research Triangle Park, N.C., U.S. with our European offices in Edinburgh, Scotland. Manufacturing is in San Sebastián, Spain through our joint venture companies Viralgen and Touchlight AAV.
