About GrayBug, Inc.

GrayBug is developing injectable controlled release technologies to reduce the frequency of ocular therapy to twice per year. The feasibility of this technology has been validated in animals with the company’s lead program, GB-102. A therapy targeting VEGF and PDGF pathways. GB-102 has the potential for treating patients with neovascular (wet) AMD just twice a year, compared to 12-15 times a year with the currently available drugs. These technologies have solved the problems with tolerability and blockage of vision noted with many injectable sustained release ocular products and are also being developed for twice per year treatment of glaucoma.

GrayBug was founded as a spin-out of the Wilmer Eye Institute of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. GrayBug’s technologies were co-developed by GrayBug founder, Justin Hanes, PhD, who is the Lewis J. Ort Professor of Ophthalmology at the Wilmer Eye Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, in collaboration with GrayBug cofounders, and leading ophthalmology clinician-scientists from the Wilmer Eye Institute Peter A. Campochiaro, MD, and Peter J. McDonnell, MD. The technologies were exclusively licensed from Johns Hopkins University. For more information, please visit www.graybug.com.
