About PhaseBio

PhaseBio Pharmaceuticals is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel drugs to treat metabolic and specialty cardiopulmonary disorders. The Company's proprietary technology platform uses recombinant elastin-like polypeptide (ELP) biopolymers to control the half-life, bioavailability and physical characteristics of molecules for ease of administration.
