These biologic drugs need to be injected or infused but patients with a chronic disease prefer the convenience of an oral drug that allows them to maintain an active lifestyle.

There has been a drought in innovation.  It’s been decades since patients have had new classes of oral drugs.

A clear opportunity and gap that Morphic Therapeutic intends to fill.
