About Us

Pioneers of RNA Technology

We believe GreenLight Biosciences is the sign of a better and healthier future.

Our Story

Founded in 2009, GreenLight Biosciences is dedicated to bringing our cell-free RNA production process to market. Our work will lead to more sustainable global development, and we promise to deliver our safe solution without compromising the Earth and its people.

We’ve pioneered a groundbreaking technology to create high-performing, natural RNA products to address global sustainability challenges and promote healthier plants, foods, and people. We’ve also opened up our biological platform to partners in academia and industry, to help them research and create RNA-based products that can preserve our natural resources and protect our environment for future generations.

Our Culture

We’re a team brought together by to a common cause: sustaining the planet, protecting our food, saving lives — and doing great work along the journey.

Driven to Discover

Our leaders lead — but stay out of the way. Team members are empowered to bring their best ideas forward, and leaders are always open to listen and act. We challenge one another to discover breakthroughs that advance our science.
