Orchard Therapeutics Global Website

Our story

We’re part of gene therapy history – and its future.

Orchard was founded in 2015 — but our roots run deeper, going back to some of the first research and clinical development involving ex vivo autologous gene therapy. We’re proud that our scientists have played a central role in the evolution of this technology from a bold vision to a potentially life-transforming reality. Today, we carry forward the history and rigor of scientific curiosity, discovery and commitment to families affected by rare disease.
