CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Triplet Therapeutics, Inc., a biotechnology company harnessing new insights from human genetics to develop transformative treatments for repeat expansion disorders, today announced that Nessan Bermingham, Ph.D., Triplet’s co-founder, president and chief executive officer, will present at the Cowen and Company 40th Annual Health Care Conference taking place in Boston March 2-4, 2020.
Dr. Bermingham will provide an overview of Triplet’s approach and recent progress to develop transformative treatments for repeat expansion disorders, a group of more than 40 known genetic diseases including Huntington’s disease, spinocerebellar ataxias and myotonic dystrophy. A significant body of human genetic evidence has identified one central pathway, known as the DNA damage response (DDR) pathway, that drives onset and progression across many of these disorders. Triplet is developing antisense oligonucleotide (ASO) and small interfering RNA (siRNA) therapeutics to precisely modulate the DDR mechanism that drives repeat expansion and has the potential to address repeat expansion disorders en masse.
Dr. Bermingham’s presentation details are as follows:
Date: Tuesday, March 3
Time: 2:00 - 2:25 p.m.
Location: Boston Marriott Copley Place
