Envisioning a new future for patients with inherited retinal diseases

Groundbreaking gene therapy

 

Groundbreaking gene therapy built by and for patients with rare inherited retinal diseases (IRD)

Backed by Foundation Fighting Blindness’s venture arm, the Retinal Degeneration Fund, Opus Genetics combines unparalleled insight and commitment toward patient need with wholly owned programs in numerous rare retinal diseases to create important new AAV-based retinal gene therapies for patients.

Targeting mutations in genes causing inherited retinal diseases

Opus Genetics’ initial focus is on treatments to address mutations in genes that cause different forms of Leber congenital amaurosis, a rare form of pediatric retinal disease, while building out an engine to efficiently solve for many other inherited blinding conditions.
