CRISP-HR Therapeutics has developed a novel CRISPR-Cas9 system that favours the cellular repair mechanism called homologous recombination (HR) over another mechanism called non-homologous end joining (NHEJ), enabling higher rates of transgene insertions. While the company yet has to disclose its lead programmes, it has revealed that it will initially focus on rare disease and metabolic conditions.
