Rubius Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company that is generating red blood cells and engineering them into an entirely new class of allogeneic, off-the-shelf cellular medicines.

We expect to begin enrolling patients in our first clinical trial during the second quarter of 2019, which is evaluating RTX-134 for the treatment of phenylketonuria, an inherited metabolic disorder. Additionally, we plan to file our first oncology IND for RTX-240 for the treatment of solid tumors by early 2020. In total, we plan to file four to five INDs during 2019 and 2020.

We are proud of our passionate, high-performance culture one based on a set of values that are the cornerstone of who we are and how we hold ourselves accountable. Founded in 2013, we are based in Cambridge, MA and currently expanding across all functions within the organization. Having completed our initial public offering in July 2018, (Nasdaq: RUBY), we are well capitalized to execute our vision of creating life-changing cellular medicines.
