in gene therapy
Jaguar Gene Therapy’s mission is to accelerate breakthroughs in gene therapy for patients suffering from severe genetic diseases. We built the company on a foundation of four elements that will allow us to deliver for patients – our team of experts, our initial pipeline, our confidence in the well-characterized AAV9 platform and our partnership with Deerfield Management.
From bench to bedside as safely and quickly as possible
Our goal is to improve the quality of life of patients with severe genetic diseases through the development of gene therapy treatments that confront diseases head-on, targeting the nonworking or missing gene by introducing healthy copies of the gene back into the body to restore function. Our team is working tirelessly to identify critical clinical needs and address them by expediting the development of gene therapies from bench to bedside as safely and quickly as possible.
