Moderna Way: Pioneering mRNA

Moderna is one of the most successful companies reached 46 Billion $ Market Capitalization, with the mission “To deliver on the promise of mRNA science to create a new generation of transformative medicines for patients”. Moderna is also selected as one of the most innovative company globally, ranking 7th, by Boston Consulting Group in 2022. An mRNA can teach the body how to make a specific protein that can help your immune system prevent or treat certain diseases. This is an entirely different approach from the conventional medicines we see today.
