About hC Bioscience

hC Bioscience is dedicated to bringing tRNA-based therapies to patients. Therapeutic tRNA is a new class of treatments that target disease-causing proteins at the level of translation. 

Our initial focus is designing and developing therapeutic tRNAs to treat cancers caused by gene mutations and inherited diseases. Our lead indications include colorectal cancer that has metastasized to the liver (CRCLM), inherited retinal disease such as retinitis pigmentosa, and muscular dystrophies. 

Therapeutic tRNA represents the next-generation of RNA-based therapies. It holds the potential to repair or eliminate damaged proteins from the body by modifying errors in mRNA, a key molecule that translates genes into proteins.
