Beam Therapeutics, Inc.

Who we are: A world-class team, founded by leaders in gene editing, with rapid consolidation of base editing technology. Beam’s co-founders helped put CRISPR gene editing on the map, and at Beam, we have come together to pursue therapies for serious diseases using groundbreaking base editing technology.

What we do: Over half of the genetic errors associated with disease result from a single letter mutation in the billions of bases that form the genome. In other cases, certain natural genetic variations in DNA are known to protect against disease. By changing a single letter – to eliminate errors or write in protective changes – in enough cells, base editing may help us prevent, modify, and even cure a wide range of diseases affecting patients’ lives.
