At Agios, our culture and values – which form the foundation of our company and differentiate us – are embodied in the Greek word Arete, the ancient ideal of excellence and fulfillment of one's potential. Arete has several meanings, and each is applicable to our company.
It is often used to describe virtue, to characterize someone as a "good person." Our company comprises good people who are striving to achieve a virtuous goal. It also connotes a sense of driving for excellence, which speaks to how far we can push ourselves and reflects our focus on achieving "the other side of possible." If we truly embody this meaning, we are confident the outcome will be novel drugs that help patients.Join Our Team
