Who We Are

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

For us, it's personal. We believe that everyone is a patient, knows a patient or has been impacted by a patient story – and every moment we dedicate to our work is more time given to patients to live a more fulfilling life.

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.
