Date:9/24/2013

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Moderna Therapeutics, the pioneering company developing messenger RNA therapeutics™, a revolutionary new treatment modality to enable the in vivo production of therapeutic proteins, announced today that FierceBiotech has named Moderna as one of 2013's Fierce 15.

The award designates Moderna as one of the most promising private companies in the biotech industry. Companies from around the world are selected based on strength of technology, venture funding, and their potential to positively impact the treatment of human diseases.

"With its messenger RNA therapies, Moderna has the potential to reinvent the way protein therapies are developed and created," says Executive Editor Ryan McBride. "AstraZeneca validated this potential in a landmark deal that gives Moderna the cash and resources to become a major player in oncology and rare diseases, making this company one to watch closely."

"We are honored to be selected as a Fierce 15 company and recognized for our vision in the field of messenger RNA therapeutics™," said Stephane Bancel, president and founding CEO of Moderna. "This award comes at an exciting time for us, as we recently published our first proof of concept study in Nature Biotechnology, providing important validation of our platform's potential to treat many diseases that cannot be addressed today. We are thrilled to be moving forward quickly and safely to translate our technology into treatment for patients in need."
