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:


FGFR=fibroblast growth factor receptor.

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. We bridge the gap between remarkable advancements in genetic science in academic institutions and the delivery of meaningful medicines to patients. Founded in 2015, the company has built a portfolio of 30+ drug development programs ranging from preclinical to late-stage development in multiple therapeutic areas including genetic dermatology, precision oncology, cardiology, endocrinology, neurology, pulmonology, and renal disease, with two approved drugs.

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.
