Freeline has a clear focus on gene therapy (AAV) targeting the liver with the aim to provide treatments for diseases with significant unmet patient needs.

Our gene therapy treatment builds upon the pioneering, world renowned work by the Freeline CSO, Professor Amit Nathwani. His award winning scientific work has already been life changing for patients with Haemophilia B by making gene therapy safe, effective and reliable.
