Prime Medicine is powered by groundbreaking technology. As a collective team, we are committed to delivering a new class of differentiated one-time curative genetic therapies to address the widest spectrum of diseases by deploying our Prime Editing technology, which we believe is a versatile, precise, efficient and broad gene editing technology.

Developed in the lab of Dr. David R. Liu at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, Prime Editing was published in Nature in December 2019. Prime Editing was immediately recognized as a major technological advance in gene editing, with the potential to overcome key limitations in existing gene editing approaches from addressing most genetic diseases.

Prime Editing galvanized a group of leading academics, company builders, investors and advisors to advance the promising technology for the benefit of patients.
