About Vor Bio

Hematopoietic stem cells to optimize stem cell transplants for cancer

Job Description

We make healthy cells invisible to targeted therapies

Targeted therapies work by attacking cells that express particular proteins on their surface. Unfortunately, both diseased and healthy cells often express the same proteins, resulting in collateral damage to healthy cells.

At Vor Bio, we engineer hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) to lack a biologically redundant target protein, then transplant these cells into the patient.

These eHSCs give rise to generations of new healthy blood cells that are effectively invisible to targeted therapies. Diseased cells displaying the target protein and are then vulnerable to attack. This process potentially broadens the therapeutic window and improves the utility of complementary targeted therapies.

Passion: Enthusiastically driving our science toward innovative medicines

Fellowship: Fostering genuine bonds of collaboration and mentorship

Humility: Acting selflessly by putting the collective mission first
