UHN Startup AVROBIO Inc. Announces $60 Million Series B Financing

UHN Startup AVROBIO, Inc., a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing transformative, life-changing gene therapies for rare diseases, announced today that it has completed a $60 million Series B financing.

We are delighted by this exceptional group of investors supporting our plans to build AVROBIO as a leader in the field of lentiviral gene therapy. We are excited to continue to rapidly advance our clinical program for AVR‑RD‑01 in Fabry disease, while also moving two additional gene therapies from our pipeline into clinical trials. We are on the leading edge of applying gene therapy as a potential single-dose curative treatment for lysosomal storage disorders, and our vision is to use our lentiviral platform to have broader impact for patients by shifting the paradigm for a wide range of other diseases.
