In 2015, the UN adopted the Agenda for Sustainable Development, including a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), of which GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING IS RANKED #3

  • Uncurbable, often fatal genetic diseases in adults and children

  • Large cost on society and individuals through disability and childhood mortality

  • Most of the morbidity, quality of life pressures and healthcare spending arise from non-communicable diseases that are mainly degenerative in nature

  • Existing therapeutic platforms do not address the issue adequately and are often symptomatic

  • Save lives treating genetic disorders early in life  

  • May solve disabling diseases including cardiovascular, oncological and neurodegenerative disorders  

  • Biotherapeutics supplement or facilitate natural functions of the organism

  • Manufacturing is biological in nature and decreases the dependence on fossil fuels
