Company presentation ProQr
Changing lives is what drives us at ProQR. With a highly energetic team of professionals we strive to make a meaningful impact on the lives of patients and the people around them. By combining innovative technologies and entrepreneurism, we aim to develop novel RNA treatments to transform the lives of patients suffering from severe genetic disorders.
ProQR was born from the dream to beat cystic fibrosis, our drug candidate QR-010 is now being tested in CF patients in clinical trials. But we won’t stop there. We have built a broad pipeline with programs that targets other severe disorders such as Leber’s congenital amaurosis, the most common cause of childhood blindness, for which we will soon initiate clinical development.
We believe all patients should be allowed to dream about the future. That is what makes us passionate and impatient. We dare to do things differently and challenge the status quo, all in the interest of patients. When you’re as driven to make a meaningful impact as we are, this can only be the start of something big.
