About QED Therapeutics & BridgeBio Pharma

QED Therapeutics, an affiliate of BridgeBio Pharma, focuses on developing targeted treatments for FGFR-driven skeletal dysplasias, particularly Achondroplasia. Achondroplasia is the most common form of genetically-driven short stature, which causes potentially debilitating medical complications. With our experimental therapeutic candidate, infigratinib, we seek to provide an option to children living with Achondroplasia and their families.
 
Our business is inspired by our values:

  • PUT PATIENTS FIRST
  • LET SCIENCE SPEAK
  • EVERY MINUTE COUNTS
  • THINK INDEPENDENTLY
  • BE RADICALLY TRANSPARENT

FGFR=fibroblast growth factor receptor.

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