Dynacure develops new treatments for patients suffering from serious orphan disorders. Dynacure’s lead program, Dyn101, is designed to address centronuclear myopathy (CNM), a rare and debilitating disease affecting children and young adults. The Dyn101 development program targets the Dynamin 2 protein using a cEt antisense oligonucleotide candidate developed in collaboration with Ionis Pharmaceuticals. Dynacure is also building a complementary research portfolio targeting other orphan disorders.

Dynacure was founded by Kurma Partners, SATT Conectus and Ionis Pharmaceuticals in 2016, based on foundational research conducted at the Institute of Genetic and Molecular and Cellular Biology (IGBMC) in Strasbourg.
