About MLBio Solutions & BridgeBio Pharma

ML Bio Solutions (ML Bio), a BridgeBio company, is a biotechnology company founded in 2018, yet the company’s founders have been dedicated to finding a cure for Limb girdle muscular dystrophy type 2I/R9 FKRP-related (LGMD2I/LGMDR9) for close to twenty years.

BridgeBio is a biopharmaceutical company founded to discover, create, test, and deliver transformative medicines to treat patients who suffer from genetic diseases and cancers with clear genetic drivers.

Our focus on scientific excellence and rapid execution aim to translate today’s discoveries into tomorrow’s medicines. We have U.S. offices in San Francisco, Palo Alto, and Raleigh, with small satellites in other parts of the country. We also have international offices in Montreal, Canada, and Zurich, Switzerland, and are expanding across Europe.
