Who We Are

Our mission is simple and powerful: improve people's lives.

We work for the challenged, the overlooked, and those who care for them.

For us, it’s personal – many of us are patients, know a patient or have been impacted by a patient story – and we believe that every moment we dedicate to our work is more time given to patients to live more fulfilling lives. That’s why we go to incredible lengths to impact the lives of people facing life-altering diseases, along with the communities who support them.

We take that responsibility seriously, and that’s why we give our people the freedom, resources and opportunities they need to maximize success for patients. We recognize and celebrate our people for thinking differently, rolling up their sleeves, demonstrating a drive for results and dealing with ambiguity.

Putting patients and their families first influences every single decision we make at Horizon–from medicine development to our focus on disease areas where there are currently unmet treatment needs.


At Horizon, we aspire to create a work environment that reflects the diversity of people facing severe health conditions because ultimately, we know and intimately understand that disease does not discriminate. We believe that when people from different backgrounds and life experiences come together – we make lives better. We embrace the bold ideas of one another, foster a sense of belonging and value diversity of thought to fuel innovation and achieve life-changing solutions.
