About Gennao Bio


Gennao Bio is a genetic medicines company developing first-in-class targeted nucleic acid therapeutics utilizing its proprietary, non-viral gene monoclonal antibody (GMAB) platform technology. GMAB is an adaptive technology that uses a novel, cell-penetrating antibody to specifically deliver nucleic acid payloads to select cells while distinctly avoiding the endocytic pathway. This next-generation delivery platform is differentiated from traditional gene delivery systems, as it can rapidly and efficiently deliver multiple types of payloads for release in the cytoplasm and nucleus, allows for repeat dosing, and employs well-established antibody manufacturing processes. Gennao Bio is developing this delivery system with an initial focus on addressing significant unmet needs in skeletal muscle diseases and oncology.
