"On the back of our previous experience in the inhaled area, we set out with the goal of creating highly effective and safe new therapies for RSV."Dr Garth Rapeport
“The products that we are developing have the potential to make significant improvements in the standard of care for patients, effectively transforming chronic and crippling conditions in vulnerable populations, into treatable and manageable diseases.”Pete Strong
