Gyroscope: Vision for Life

Gyroscope Therapeutics is building something special – a company to preserve people’s sight and fight the devastating impact of blindness around the world. And if we are successful, our gene therapies and surgical devices will offer people the chance to see what they otherwise would have missed.

To be successful we need the right people. People who have passion for helping patients. People who can work as one toward a common goal, have fun and together bring forward the best ideas. People who celebrate success and embrace failure as an opportunity to learn and grow. If you are one of these people, we would love to meet you.
