Patients & Caregivers

At Agios, people living with cancer and rare genetic diseases are at the center of everything we do and every decision we make. We are guided by a deep-rooted commitment to creating treatment options that make a meaningful difference in patients’ lives and fundamentally change the way cancer and rare genetic diseases are treated.
"Inspired by Patients"

Our Commitment to Patients

Each day, we climb a stairway at Agios that features portraits of our loved ones affected by cancer. We are reminded that cancer and rare genetic disorders are more than just diseases of the body – they disrupt the lives of individuals and impact entire families. These patient stories reinforce the importance of the work we do, the urgent need for new therapies, and the necessity that our medicines meet the highest of standards.

What Drives Us

The many friends and family of Agios employees affected by cancer are what motivates, inspires and drives us.
