We are supported by world-class academic research.

Our Mission

PepGen’s ambition is to harness the power of peptide conjugation technologies in order to address the delivery challenge associated with nucleic acid therapeutics and thus realise the clinical potential of these transformative therapeutics. There is a deep need for a paradigm shift in genomic medicine, and PepGen’s innovative peptides are ideally positioned to effect this change for patients, families and the broader healthcare community.

As a Company, We Value:

Research

PepGen is a scientific company at heart, and we approach our work with an evidence-based mindset.

Innovation

We are always looking for ways to learn, build and improve across all facets of our company.

Integrity

Without fail, we act ethically and honestly in both science and business.

Responsibility

As a therapeutic company, we are cognisant of the impact our work has on patients and their families.

Our Story

The technology underpinning PepGen’s approach is to improve the delivery of nucleic acid therapeutics to their site of action through their conjugation to peptide vectors. Prof Matthew Wood (University of Oxford) and Dr Mike Gait (MRC, Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge), the academic co-founders of PepGen, have devoted 10 years to the design and study of such conjugate therapeutics. PepGen was spun out from these academic institutions in 2018 to commercialise this technology following a seed investment from Oxford Sciences Innovation (OSI).
