CU Innovations and BridgeBio Pharma are partnering to advance novel therapeutics for genetic diseases and oncology. BridgeBio was founded in 2015 to identify and develop treatments that target well-characterized genetic diseases at their source. In service of its mission to bridge the gap between remarkable scientific innovation and patients with unmet needs, BridgeBio has a pipeline of over 20 development programs ranging from early discovery to late-stage development. The CU and BridgeBio partnership will support innovative research into potential therapies by providing resources for proof-ofconcept studies, with the intent of advancing promising candidates into the clinic. Please join us to learn more about how to partner with BridgeBio.
