Q: What is oligomedicine?
A: Oligonucleotides are short strands of DNA or RNA. The core basis of human biology is that DNA makes RNA which, in turn, makes proteins that are critical to life. The abnormal production of protein is the cause of most human disease. We produce oligonucleotides that are used as Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API). Oligonucleotides are used in clinical trials and launched commercial therapies.
Q: Why do we like working here?
A: At Avecia, you’ll find a real network of collaboration and support that’s backed by an open door policy to peers and management of various backgrounds. And while we’re focused on results, we still maintain our flexibility, enjoy camaraderie and a very friendly and supportive environment, and we have the benefit of work/life balance.
