Life at MyoKardia

I had made a great choice in becoming a MyoKardian.

The MyoKardia on-boarding experience was energizing. It focused on understanding of MyoKardia's values and included conversations with members of the Executive Committee to allow me to quickly understand the company's strategic approach and priorities. As I had moved cross-country to join MyoKardia, my colleagues’ friendliness, curiosity and attentiveness further confirm that I had made a great choice in becoming a MyoKardian.

Recharge and take time for self-enrichment

In 2018, we introduced a sabbatical program for employees who achieve their six-year anniversary with the company. Our sabbatical program provides a great opportunity for employees to recharge, spend quality time with family and friends or take time for self-enrichment

Right drug to the right patient at the right time.

Precision medicine involves integrating genetic and molecular information, as well as clinical and environmental factors, to discover and develop treatments tailored to the underlying causal factors or shared characteristics of a patient’s disease. In short, I like to say that our goal is to get the right drug to the right patient at the right time.
