Beam Therapeutics Inc. is a biotechnology company. The Company is focused on developing precision genetic medicines based on its base editing technology to provide life-long cures to patients suffering from diseases. Its base editing technology enables a new class of precision genetic medicines that targets a single base in the genome without making a double-stranded break in the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). The Company’s base editing technology of therapeutic applications pursue a suite of both clinically validated and delivery modalities, depending on tissue type, which includes electroporation for delivery to blood cells and immune cells ex vivo; lipid nanoparticles (LNPs), for non-viral in vivo delivery to the liver and potentially other organs in the future, and adeno-associated viral vectors (AAV), for in vivo viral delivery to the eye and potentially other organs. The Company has four development candidates, which include BEAM-101, BEAM-102, BEAM-201 and BEAM-301.
