Sigilon Therapeutics

Associate Sponsor

Sigilon Therapeutics is a biopharmaceutical company creating functional cures for chronic diseases using Shielded Living Therapeutics. The Shielded Living Therapeutics product platform consists of novel engineered human cells that are encased in a proprietary immune-shielding matrix and placed in the body. These Shielded Living Therapeutics then produce therapeutic proteins in a programmable and durable fashion, without generating fibrosis or immune rejection. Our pipeline of products in hemophilia, lysosomal storage diseases, and, in collaboration with Eli Lilly, type 1 diabetes, are rapidly advancing toward the clinic. Sigilon was founded and created by Flagship Pioneering in conjunction with Daniel Anderson, Ph.D., and Robert Langer, Sc.D., of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
