DNA Valley

Capturing the Thriving Gene and Cell Therapy Revolution in Maryland


About DNA Valley


Maryland is home to both the Human Genome Project, which successfully sequenced the human genome, and the National Institutes of Health, the United States' most prestigious research institution. It is no surprise the State is at the heart of the first cell and gene therapy revolution that is producing cures to previously untreatable diseases. With over 2,700 life science firms, Maryland is on its way to becoming the “DNA Valley” of the United States.


AGT “DNA Valley” series will highlight cutting-edge cell and gene therapy products, technologies, and platforms in use or in development by leading innovative companies in Maryland. We interview the booming industry’s top executives charging forward with strong leadership and industry knowledge to bring their therapies through the clinic and eventually into patients. This series will cover companies unlocking endless possibilities and creating cell and gene therapy cures for cancers, autoimmune diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and more. Hear their stories and learn how they’ve beat the odds and successfully push therapies into a competitive marketplace.
