Transforming the lives of cancer patients, one alteration at a time.

Mission – Vision – Values

Our Mission is to discover precise therapies and inspire hope for individuals affected by cancer.

We are driven by the urgency of our mission and guided by our core values of accountability, creativity, perseverance, longevity, exemplifying compassion, and a mind toward co-elevation.

What We Do

Accelerating the next wave of targeted therapies

Our structure-guided drug discovery approach enables the design of alteration-specific therapies to precisely target high-value, validated oncogenic drivers where patients have very few treatment options.

A LETTER FROM the A-team

Bringing together a top-notch team to deliver on our Goals


We are a close group of scientists and business professionals who truly love what we do and who we work with. This isn’t a “top-down” kind of company. Everyone has a voice and their opinions, knowledge, experience, etc. are valued here. Don’t hesitate to show us a new way to do something, a new vantage point to consider…this is how we all grow.

At Alterome, you’ll notice that we work to co-elevate each other. What does that mean, you ask? We work together, speak and interact in a way that is respectful of each other; we tap into our empathy and humility and seek to understand each other; we act with integrity and candor; we build each other up to help each other succeed. It’s how we each promise to be at Alterome. In fact, all of us sign a co-elevation contract.

We started a Movement at Alterome to build an amazing company where people value each other and work together, with one mission in mind…To discover precise therapies and inspire hope for individuals affected by cancer. Our focus is on the patients. They need us to be on our game, tap into our strengths, and move these projects from discovery to clinic and beyond! Each of us believes in this team’s ability to succeed in that mission.

Our People Make the Difference!

We have come together as a Team; we COMMIT to our mission to DISCOVER life-changing therapies and INSPIRE hope for cancer patients. We believe that how we work together allows us to accomplish this goal in the best way possible. Everyone’s voice is heard. Challenge accepted. If you share our vision to transform the lives of cancer patients, come join us.
