“I love working at Adamas because of the focus on improving the lives of patients and their caregivers, which is discussed regularly and always drives decision making within the organization. Finding your “why” is a critical part of transforming a job or career into a vocation, and the “why” is always front and center at Adamas. Couple that with a team of highly skilled, collaborative, communicative colleagues, and the result is that Adamas is a great place to work and see true meaning in what you do every day.”

Supporting the neurology community

Our passion, commitment and connection to helping people affected by neurological diseases goes well beyond our office walls. Our work extends beyond the development and delivery of medicines – we are committed to playing an active role in the communities that we serve through advocacy and education programs, providing educational resources, and information to make a difference. We recognize the importance of integrating the many patient voice into all aspects of our work, and value our direct engagement with advocates and communities.

Collaborations and partnerships are fundamental to how Adamas can help improve patients’ lives by filling unmet needs and make an impact through meaningful support to the organizations, initiatives, and causes that reflect our mission, values and strategic focus.
