Moderna Therapeutics is a biotechnology company focused on pioneering the development of a new class of drugs utilizing messenger RNA (mRNA). This new and innovative drug platform builds on the discovery that modified mRNA can direct the body’s cellular machinery to produce nearly any protein desired, from native proteins to antibodies and other entirely novel protein constructs that can have therapeutic activity inside and outside of cells. These proteins have the potential to prevent, treat or cure diseases, including those that are currently not addressable, by going inside cells to direct how they operate. Moderna’s mission is to deliver on the promise of mRNA science to create a new generation of transformative medicines for patients.
