By Theo Smith, Associate, Marketing & Communications  

Bluebird Bio is a biotechnology company that develops gene therapies for severe genetic disorders and cancer. The goal of Bluebird Bio is to recode the science, the system – and even the status quo – for life. 

Bluebird Bio believes making a difference starts with taking a stand. The company pushes hard on gene therapy because they believe it delivers the chance for people with severe genetic diseases and cancer to live fully, regardless of what’s written in their DNA.
