About Generation Bio

Generation Bio is creating a revolutionary new class of genetic medicines that deliver durable, high levels of gene expression and have drug-like properties, including ability to titrate to effect and re-dose. Our unique GeneWave technology allows us to overcome the limitations of other approaches by delivering larger genes, including more sophisticated regulatory elements, and avoiding the immunogenicity which limits both the number of patients who can be treated and the ability to re-dose them over time.
