REGENXBIO Inc. is a leading clinical-stage biotechnology company seeking to improve lives through the curative potential of gene therapy. Our gene therapy product candidates are designed to deliver functional genes to address genetic defects in cells, enabling the production of therapeutic proteins or antibodies that are intended to impact disease. Through a single administration, gene therapy could potentially alter the course of disease significantly and deliver improved patient outcomes with long-lasting effects.  We have developed a broad pipeline of gene therapy programs using our NAV® Technology Platform to address genetic diseases through two modalities: AAV-mediated antibody delivery and monogenic gene replacement. We believe this platform forms a strong foundation for our current programs and with our ongoing research and development, we expect to continue to expand the platform.
