Arbor Biotechnologies is an early-stage life sciences company unlocking nature’s genetic diversity to enable revolutionary gene editing capabilities. Co-founded by Feng Zhang and David Walt, Arbor is uncovering unique CRISPR enzymes that can power a wide range of applications across areas, including therapeutics and manufacturing. Arbor’s research team, along with its partners and collaborators, are using Arbor’s gene editing technologies for diverse applications across cell and gene therapy and bio-manufacturing that existing tools are unable to achieve.
Following its strategic partnership with Vertex Pharmaceuticals to accelerate the path to the clinic for Arbor’s technologies, Arbor recently announced an agreement with Lonza. These partnerships further validate the breadth of applications of Arbor’s gene editing platform that can be custom tailored to individual disease targets.
