At GlycoMimetics, we are focused on developing treatments that provide hope for patients with cancer, sickle cell, and potentially with other serious diseases. We are pioneers in the use of glycobiology technology, reflecting our understanding of the roles cellular carbohydrates play in health and disease.
As we strive to develop new therapies for those with high unmet medical needs, our core values underpin our mission. These values not only define who we are, but how we build our drug development pipeline, and how we establish relationships with employees, patients, healthcare providers, researchers and stakeholders.
Passion | Perseverance | Integrity | Teamwork
Passion–We share a common belief that the work we do matters deeply. Our desire to create a lasting impact underscores our commitment to innovation and excellence. Since we are motivated by a sense of adventure and the satisfaction of improving patients’ lives through pioneering science, we come to work each day with a sense of urgency, importance, and focus.
Perseverance–We possess an inner strength that allows us to remain dedicated to a purpose, idea or task. Our willingness to encourage inventiveness, challenge the status quo and take on calculated risk is what sets us apart. Simply put, we are pioneers who have a competitive spirit and an unwavering determination to advance what is right and worthwhile.
Integrity–We conduct our business to the highest level of scientific, ethical, and quality standards. Our actions define us as an organization and therefore we strive to create an environment where candor (saying what we mean), reliability (honoring our commitments), and accountability (taking responsibility for our actions) are demonstrated consistently.
Teamwork–We see the inherent value in every individual and strive to create a collaborative, open working environment where every team member is expected to contribute. We form long lasting, trusted relationships through mutual respect, loyalty, community involvement, and support that extend beyond our job responsibilities. We celebrate diversity by showing genuine interest, regard, and appreciation for different people, approaches and styles, as we know our collective experience affords us a competitive edge.
