It’s personal

Bluejay is on a mission to illuminate a path toward curative treatments for serious viral and liver diseases.

At Bluejay, we each embody a passion and connection to our purpose, and we are unified in envisioning a world where a functional cure is possible for everyone with CHB/CHD. We believe it’s a question of when, not if.

Our Leadership

Our team combines decades of experience in HBV, virology, immunology and liver diseases with scientific integrity and a personal commitment to improve the lives of people living with these diseases. 

We apply this knowledge to identify and develop highly differentiated assets that offer the greatest therapeutic potential with the lowest risk for patients.

Our Pipeline

Bluejay is passionate about shifting the treatment paradigms for patients with difficult viral and liver diseases.

We’re starting by making a functional cure for CHB a reality and developing a life-changing treatment for CHD – both have been in the shadow of other infectious diseases for too long.


Unified in our ambition to find a cure.

Developing a cure is not easy work, but it’s what inspires and drives us. We understand what’s at stake, so we aim high and lead with our hearts.
