WATERTOWN, Mass., April 23, 2024 Dyno Therapeutics, Inc., a techbio company pioneering applications of artificial intelligence to engineer AAV capsids that expand the potential of genetic medicine, today announced a Scientific Symposium and the presentation of three research abstracts, including one oral presentation, at the upcoming 27th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT) being held May 7-11th, 2024 in Baltimore, Maryland. That same week Dyno Therapeutics will also be giving two talks on the theme of Machine Learning at SynBioBeta’s Global Synthetic Biology Conference held from May 6-9th, 2024 in San Jose, California.

From its inception, Dyno Therapeutics has been a leader in applying generative AI to advance the frontiers of AAV engineering. Through its AI-powered platform, the company has achieved improved gene delivery to a broad array of gene therapy targets, developing capsids to target the eye, muscle and brain. The company’s presence at both the ASGCT and SynBioBeta conferences will highlight recent successes from applying machine learning to capsid design, and explore what these applications mean for gene therapy in an era of rapid AI development.

Dyno’s ASGCT Scientific Symposium will showcase how artificial intelligence enables the design of novel capsids optimized across multiple in vivo delivery properties, and furthermore makes it possible to create synthetic capsids with high-edit distances from natural serotypes, thereby potentially allowing more patients to benefit from gene therapies. At SynBioBeta, Dyno engineers will delve into the reality of ML-driven approaches, highlighting both the promise and challenges that arise when solving real-world problems like in vivo delivery for gene therapies via capsid design.
