Transformative power of AAV technology and gene therapy
Our global team of research experts, scientists, and collaborators all pioneered gene therapy technology that is changing the face of medicine. Our connection to the research community is essential to the discovery of new, innovative genetic technologies and our ability to bring curative medicines to patients across the globe.
AskBio labs are in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, Edinburgh, Scotland, and San Sebastian, Spain. We also have partnerships with many leading research institutions. Our lab facilities, GMP manufacturing sites, and scientific capabilities cover a breadth of AAV technology processes, genetic engineering, and therapeutic development.
Science inspired by collaborative possibilities
The discoveries that our researchers and scientists have brought to life is defining how genetic medicine will be commercialized in the future. We bring decades of genetic expertise grounded in proven, commercially validated technologies used by the world’s largest biopharmaceutical companies.
Our collaborative spirit has driven gene therapy advancements and has culminated in a rich patent portfolio that translates into clinical success with our research partners.
We continually evolve our science to give every new breakthrough the chance it deserves, to make a difference in the lives of patients, and advance the most promising field in medicine today – gene therapy.
