Our vision

There is vast unrealized potential for RNA to begin addressing many of Earth’s biggest problems, but only with the right discoveries, the right development, and the right delivery. 

Many brilliant scientific breakthroughs never achieve their full potential. They are too complex and expensive to be applied on the largest scale, meaning that many people are denied their benefits. Big problems persist, even when we have the science to solve them.

The ethos of GreenLight Biosciences is to challenge this dynamic. Our emphasis is to deliver solutions to major problems that are not only highly effective, but also affordable and sustainable. Solutions that reach the whole world, not just its richest parts. 

Our discovery and development expertise, coupled with our proven manufacturing platform, means that we can work successfully with partners to address a whole range of difficult problems, from COVID-19 to the Colorado potato beetle, from sickle cell anemia to the parasitic varroa mites that threaten our honeybees.
