Passion for genetic disease research
Dr. Aznarez and Professor Krainer began working together in 2008 at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York. Their focus has been on applying antisense oligonucleotides to modulate RNA splicing and RNA metabolism pathways. They share a passion for addressing genetic diseases, and also share a common heritage, as both were born in Uruguay. TANGO is the name of Stoke’s foundational technology and is a nod to their native country. Today, Dr. Aznarez continues to guide research as Stoke’s head of biology, Professor Krainer remains closely involved as a member of Stoke’s board of directors, Dr. Nash is the chief operating officer and business officer and Dr. Kaye is the chief executive officer.
