Alnylam is leading the translation of RNA interference (RNAi) into an innovative new class of medicines for patients who have limited or inadequate treatment options. Based on Nobel Prize-winning science, RNAi therapeutics represent a powerful, clinically-validated approach for the treatment of a wide range of severe and debilitating diseases.
Founded in 2002, Alnylam is delivering on a bold vision to turn scientific possibility into reality, with a robust RNAi discovery platform and deep pipeline of investigational medicines including two approved medicines in Canada, five programs in late-stage clinical development and multiple programs in early-stage clinical development.
RNAi: A REVOLUTION IN BIOLOGY BUILT ON NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING RESEARCH
RNA interference (RNAi) is a breakthrough in understanding how genes are regulated in cells. It also represents a completely new approach to drug discovery and development. The 2006 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine, awarded to Craig Mello and Andrew Fire, recognized the importance of RNAi as a major scientific discovery.
Our pipeline of investigational RNAi therapeutics is focused on diseases with high unmet medical need that fall into 4 Strategic Therapeutic Areas (STArs): genetic medicines, cardio-metabolic diseases, infectious diseases, and central nervous system (CNS) and ocular diseases.
