Patients & Community

Ionis community collaborations

At Ionis, the issues that are most critical to patients inform and inspire us in our work. By gaining a deeper understanding of what it means to live with disease, we gain a better appreciation of the disease burden, and can focus our resources where we believe we can make the most meaningful contribution. We seek industry and academic partners that share in our values and can help us to propel our research forward.

Corporate Alliances

Community Commitment

Every year we provide support to various initiatives that have a positive effect in our community, from financial assistance to employee volunteerism and beyond. We seek sustainable partnerships and initiatives that support scientific innovation and unmet patient needs, including disease awareness, education and support.

Once in a lifetime breakthroughs again and again

Meet Chuck. Active throughout his life, hATTR, a rare disease, started to rob him of the things he loved: riding his bicycle, dancing, racing motorcycles, and picking up his grandchildren. Just about to give up, news of a clinical trial renewed his hope.
