Dimension also has entered into a collaboration with REGENX, gaining preferred access to NAV vector technology and rights in REGENX product programs.

“Gene therapy is a fundamental method of disease intervention, changing a patient’s genetic code to treat genetic disease, and in some cases providing a potential lifelong benefit following a single treatment,” said Dr. Thomas R. Beck, executive partner at Fidelity Biosciences and the interim chief executive of Dimension Therapeutics.
