Vertex Crispr Agreement

CRISPR Therapeutics Investor Contact:Susan Kim 617-307-7503susan.kim@crisprtx.com, CTX001 is being developed as part of a co-development and co-marketing agreement between CRISPR Therapeutics and Vertex. Of the genetic editing methods studied/evaluated for TDT and SCD, CTX001 is the most advanced in clinical development. About CRISPR Therapeutics CRISPR Therapeutics` mission is to develop transgenic drugs for patients with serious illnesses. Our therapeutic approach aims to cure diseases at the molecular level with the revolutionary genetic editing technology called CRISPR-Cas9. With our multidisciplinary team of world-renowned academics, drug developers and clinicians, we are uniquely positioned to transform CRISPR-Cas9 technology into human therapeutics. We have licensed our scientific founder, Dr. Emmanuelle Charpentier, for the use of humanotherapeutics, of our scientific founder. We are headquartered in Basel, Switzerland, with research and development operations in Cambridge, Massachusetts and offices in London, UK. www.crisprtx.com CTX001 will be jointly developed by Vertex and CRISPR as part of a co-development and co-marketing agreement originally signed in 2015. TDT/SCD gene therapy is the first treatment from the joint research program.
