Our team

Korro Bio was founded to turn extraordinary scientific insights into life-altering new treatments for patients. We harness the body’s natural RNA editing machinery to make precise, single-base RNA edits to modulate protein function, addressing the medical needs of patients. Our mission is to rewrite the future for patients living with debilitating disease by repairing the underlying genetic cause.

Korro Bio’s team of experts is working to overcome the challenges that have limited existing gene editing and gene therapy approaches, and treat diseases that have previously been unreachable by other methods.
