2 About Us AGT photo

American Gene Technologies is a pioneering biotech company headquartered in Rockville, Maryland, that’s using gene therapy to cure humanity’s most deadly diseases. American Gene is creating the foundation for a fundamentally new approach to medicine. Much like Apple’s iOS platform for the iPhone, we're building a gene therapy platform, so other scientists can build on its approach to develop new cures (much like software developers creating apps for the iPhone). This will significantly cut the time and costs of developing new drugs for a variety of diseases.

American Gene Technologies is developing and commercializing genetic medicines targeting major diseases, including HIV, Phenylketonuria (PKU) and Hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer, or HCC). Our drug candidates have achieved initial proof of concept in preclinical studies and have potential to deliver cost-effective therapies that are better targeted and more potent with fewer side effects. American Gene Technology's drugs will treat symptomatic diseases, but are intended to provide durable cures that extend the length and improve the quality of patients’ lives.
