Join our Team

We strive to find talented individuals who embrace our commitment to patients in need and share our values. Our success will be determined by collective diversity of thoughts, skills and experiences.

Share Our Values

As a team, we foster innovation in all forms as we collectively strive to discover and develop new approaches to treating very difficult infections.

At our core, we dive deep into the science of infections and the therapies that fight them, holding ourselves to the highest scientific standards and best practices to bring those discoveries through approval and to patients in need.

Commitment and Caring
The patients we serve are very ill and often facing life-threatening infections. We will not waiver in our commitment to them, their families and their healthcare providers.

Drug development takes a village, and we know we cannot succeed unless our entire team and partners join together to bring therapies from discovery into patients' hands.

We value diversity of professions, backgrounds and cultures, understanding that each of us has a respected insight and perspective on our work and our vision.

Our team is built on agility and flexibility, adjusting to opportunities and needs of the business quickly and comfortably.
