About GrayBug, Inc.
GrayBug was founded in September 2011 as a spin-out of the Wilmer Eye Institute of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. GrayBug is developing injectable controlled release technologies to reduce the frequency of ocular therapy to a few times per year (as few as twice per year). These technologies have solved the problems with tolerability and blockage of vision noted with many injectable sustained release ocular products. GrayBug is initially focused on developing its own products for the treatment of wet AMD and glaucoma. 

GrayBug's technologies were co-developed by GrayBug founder, Justin Hanes, PhD, who is the Lewis J. Ort Professor of Ophthalmology at the Wilmer Eye Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, in collaboration with GrayBug cofounders, and leading ophthalmology clinician-scientists from the Wilmer Eye Institute Peter A. Campochiaro, MD, and Peter J. McDonnell, MD. The technologies were licensed from Johns Hopkins University. For more information, please visit
