Lung Biotechnology is the first public benefit corporation subsidiary of a public biotechnology or pharmaceutical company.

We currently have five approved products on the market and a long-term mission of providing an unlimited supply of transplantable organs for those who need them.

Our company was founded by an entrepreneur whose daughter was diagnosed with a life-threatening condition. She sought to find treatment options and a cure for her daughter and patients like her. We are founder-led, and relentless in our pursuit of "medicines for life". We continue to research and develop treatments for cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases, pediatric cancers and other orphan diseases.
