Translate Bio Team

What does a Translator do? We interpret, guide, solve and communicate.



We’re proud to be one of Boston Business Journal’s Best Places to Work 2018 & 2019, and a Boston Globe Top Place to Work 2019!

Translate Bio is a dynamic group of passionate individuals who are here to send a message: that the promise of mRNA medicines will be actualized and that it is us who can make it happen.

It’s this belief that drives us, that keeps us up at night and that brings us together—from around the world, representing different academic, social and cultural backgrounds.

It’s not just our science that makes Translate great—it’s our transformative culture, which is arguably the best in biotech. We pride ourselves on being bold and tenacious yet approachable. You’ll find us in each other’s workspaces, stopping by for a chat. Our office doors are open, and every Wednesday, we sit down together for lunch. And while we’re serious about what we do, we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

We could go on, but we’ll let the team do the talking instead.

"The employees here are extremely intelligent and enthusiastic about our science, which makes coming into work every day fun and exciting."

Amy Iannelli

Director, Finance & External Reporting

"Although challenging, I look forward to work every day because MRT, a relatively young field, has tremendous potential. As such, our individual contributions have a significant and positive impact on patients living with unmet medical needs."

Jonathan Abysalh

Senior Scientist

"I love working with mRNA because it has an inherent potential to express any protein. It could be a versatile treatment for a wide variety of diseases including rare genetic disorders."

Khang Tran

Research Associate, RNA Science

"It’s exciting to work on the development of delivery systems for such a dynamic and impactful molecule that can potentially help patients’ cells produce their own therapeutics!"

Natalia Vargas

Research Associate, Formulations

"It’s all about the anticipation. Each day I wake up knowing we are one step closer to a breakthrough medicine."

John Androsavich

Head of Target Biology
