About Us: 

Talaris Therapeutics, Inc. (“Talaris”) is a late-clinical stage, publicly traded (Nasdaq Global Market: TALS), biotechnology company that is developing an innovative method of allogenic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation that we believe has the potential to transform the standard of care in sold organ transplantation, certain severe autoimmune diseases, and certain severe non-malignant immune and metabolic disorders.  In a ground-breaking, phase 2 study, our lead therapy, FCR001, enabled 70% of living donor kidney transplant recipients to be weaned off all immunosuppression within 12 months of their kidney transplant without rejecting their donated organ. 

We are currently conducting FREEDOM-1, a randomized, controlled, open-label Phase 3 registration trial in the United States of FCR001 in 120 adult living donor kidney transplant (LDKT) recipients, as well as two additional Phase 2 clinical trials:  FREEDOM-2, in which we are evaluating the potential of FCR001 to induce durable immune tolerance in patients who have previously received a kidney from a living donor, and FREEDOM-3 in which we are evaluating the safety and efficacy of FCR001 in adults with a severe form of scleroderma, a debilitating autoimmune disease. We currently have approximately 140 employees. We maintain corporate offices in Boston, MA in addition to our cell processing facility in Louisville, KY and our process and analytical development labs in Houston, TX.
