We are a leading RNA therapeutics company, using our proprietary platform technology to develop genetic medicines:
- Our drug candidates harness a naturally occurring mechanism known as RNA interference, which is able to selectively inhibit gene expression
- We can design our therapies to specifically target only the problematic gene that is causal in a disease
- Our targeted delivery adds to the specificity of our mechanism of action, with therapeutic siRNA molecules only reaching the intended target cells in the body
Our upgraded, patient-friendly delivery technology is suitable for applications in a variety of disease settings. Our liver centric pipeline is currently build around three main areas of high unmet need: haematology, metabolic and rare diseases.
We have developed proprietary stabilising chemistries to improve the robustness of siRNA sequences, together with advanced delivery systems that enable us to specifically target relevant cell types. This results in potent and highly specific drug candidates.

Silence is the only listed RNAi player in Europe and a pioneer in this technology. Through the efforts of our skilled scientists over the years we have established a robust platform that allows us to effectively trigger RNAi in specific cell types.
Our inventions are protected by a broad intellectual property estate, which is a fundamental asset. Together with our progress, the fact that the field is generally maturing means that RNAi drugs are close to becoming a powerful genetic medicine modality at the disposal of doctors and patients.
