Sangamo Therapeutics is the only company solely focused on the development of zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs) as a tool for genetic engineering. The company applies the tool for both ex vivo and in vivo-based gene-editing therapies, as well as a tool for genome regulation. The company is currently sponsoring clinical trials for sickle cell disease and beta-thalassemia, where ZFNs are applied for gene editing. The company holds multiple substantial collaborations with companies such Pfizer, Biogen, Novartis, Takeda, Sanofi and Kite Pharma.
