Company Overview
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 (MRT), 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.

At Translate Bio, we’re also passionate about our five core values: Put People First, Be Approachable, Act as One, Be Tenacious, and Be Bold. These values embody our culture and underscore our mission to bring mRNA therapeutics to all.
