About Us

Developing a new class of potentially transformative mRNA medicines

Our Story

We are a leading mRNA therapeutics company developing a new class of potentially transformative medicines to treat diseases caused by protein or gene dysfunction. Using our proprietary mRNA therapeutic platform (MRTTM), we create mRNA that encodes functional proteins. Our mRNA is delivered to the target cell where the cell’s own machinery recognizes it and translates it, restoring or augmenting protein function to treat or prevent disease.

Our MRTTM platform has been in development for the past ten years, initially at Shire and internally at Translate since 2016. With the scientific founders of MRTTM now part of our leadership team, we have built on Shire’s initial pioneering work and investment to advance our goal of bringing our transformative mRNA approach to patients.

We believe that our MRTTM platform is applicable to a broad range of diseases caused by insufficient protein production or where production of proteins can modify disease, including diseases that affect the lung, liver, eye, central nervous system, lymphatic system and circulatory system. Our two lead programs are being developed as treatments for cystic fibrosis (CF) and ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency.

Outside the Lab

In addition to our commitment to transform mRNA science into therapies, we are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of people affected by disease. To learn more about ways we can partner,
