What is mRNA?

Messenger RNA, or mRNA, plays a fundamental role in human biology, transferring the instructions stored in DNA to make the proteins required in every living cell. Our approach is to use mRNA medicines to instruct a patient’s own cells to produce proteins that could prevent, treat, or cure disease.

We refer to a modality as a family of potential mRNA medicines, consistent both in design and how and where they are delivered in the body. Modalities may focus on different diseases within one therapeutic area - or across therapeutic areas - allowing us to potentially use one technological solution to create medicines for many diseases.
