The Power of cell+gene
With our cell+gene platform, BlueRock is aiming to redefine the very way we treat disease, moving from addressing mere symptoms to restoring health lost to cell damage or degeneration. Instead of prescribing a pill to treat tremors in patients with Parkinson’s, we might restore the chemical messengers that were destroyed, addressing tremors at the source. Those who have suffered a heart attack may be able to have their damaged heart cells replaced rather than be burdened with constant medications that cause debilitating side effects or serve only to address limited symptoms. And, further, we have the potential to engineer immune cells that could deliver unique therapeutic payloads to treat autoimmunity and cancer.
