Who We Are

At Ohana Biosciences, we are pioneering a reproductive health revolution through our industry-first platform of sperm-based technologies. We began with a vision to reimagine global reproductive health and help all people create the healthy family they dream of – when they are ready. Today, we believe our unprecedented understanding of sperm biology coupled with our pioneering research will turn our vision into a reality.

Through our platform, we are focused on fundamental components of reproductive health: fertility, pregnancy complications, inherited disease, developmental disorders, and non-hormonal contraception. By advancing research in fertility treatments, new technologies to reduce pregnancy complications, disease transmission, and developmental disorders, and enabling non-hormonal contraception, Ohana is dedicated to becoming a leader in reproductive health and offering life-changing options for people. Ohana was founded in 2016 by Flagship Pioneering and is based in Cambridge, Mass. For more information, please visit www.OhanaBio.com.

Be Audacious

Traditional paths have put too much burden on women, not given men enough options, and leave too many people out. We take smart risks and fearlessly pursue our work to revolutionize reproductive health.

Stay Curious

Curiosity is what we live for at Ohana. We won’t achieve our mission unless we ask and answer thousands of questions about sperm biology and reproduction that have been ignored.
