Nanoscope Therapeutics to Move Corporate Headquarters to Dallas
“Moving to Trinity Towers places us in the heart of the growing healthcare community in Dallas,” said Nanoscope Co-Founder and CEO, Sulagna Bhattacharya. “Rapid growth is expected for Nanoscope in 2023 and Trinity Towers provides an excellent space for our expanding team to collaborate.”
Nanoscope Therapeutics is advancing gene therapy using ambient light-sensitive molecules, bringing hope for renewed sight to millions of people blinded by retinal degenerative diseases for which no cure exists.
Nanoscope is focused on proprietary ambient light-activated optogenetic therapy to restore vision in people suffering from various inherited retinal degenerative diseases including Retinitis Pigmentosa, Stargardt, and dry AMD.
Genetic retinal degenerative diseases cause vision loss as cells of the retina gradually become dysfunctional. Nanoscope’s proprietary gene therapies correct the condition by delivering light-sensitive molecules, called Multi-Characteristic Opsins (MCO), into retinal cells.
