We like to share information about our workplace at AVROBIO.
Our mission: Curing rare diseases in a single dose. We believe: Gene therapy will revolutionize the future.
Here are some of the ways we are living our mission.
In 2018, AVROBIO initiated the Ripples4Rare campaign, with a site for people to leave a message that shares a ripple of hope with their thoughts and experiences about rare diseases. Every time a visitor shared the Ripples4Rare page, they added to the participation to help achieve the fund-raising goal. Dedicated to all rare disease organizations, AVROBIO’s focus in 2018 is Fabry International Network (FIN), with a donation goal of $10,000 that was achieved in March 2018.
Rare Disease Day: February 28, 2018
On Rare Disease Day, AVROBIO employees showed their solidarity with patients with rare diseases by getting tattoos on their arms that said “Be Rare. Be You.” The tattoos were temporary, but showed a long-lasting commitment by the AVROBIO team to work every day to bring innovative gene therapies to patients with rare diseases.
