Akouos lab

Boston – STEM Solutions LLC., based in Wakefield, Mass., recently completed work on phase 2 of the Akouos lab build out in Boston, designed by Tria Design.

STEM, a national provider of lab equipment and furniture, provided and installed painted steel casework, chemical fume hoods, pre-wired and pre-piped lab benches, and utility service panels. Columbia Construction was the general contractor.

Akouos is developing targeted adeno-associated viral (AAV) vector-based gene therapies for sensorineural hearing loss, the most common form of hearing loss and one of the most common of all sensory disorders. Akouos recently received FDA clearance of its IND Application for AK-OTOF, a gene therapy intended for the treatment of OTOF-mediated hearing loss.
