An Unmatched Team

Our people are the key to everything we will accomplish. We’re building a community with a mission to make a difference in the lives of others.

A Relentless Spirit

Our team is laser-focused in its pursuit of new treatments for our fellow human beings. We’re driven to find solutions and we do so with unwavering dedication.

The Foghorn community is manifested by its beliefs and aspirations:

People first

“Our team puts people first. While we work hard to develop new medicines for patients, it is clear that at Foghorn we are valued as people, and not just as employees. Through not just their words, but also their actions, our team lets us know that they truly care about us, our families, and our lives.”


Principal Scientist and 2019 Trailblazer award winner

Collaborate to innovate

“I love working on tough problems in the weeds with smart people. I also take pride in making sure all the teams I work with have what we need to succeed. I really enjoy the critical engagement with the science, infectious energy around our data, and the fast pace!”


Senior Scientist, Head of Protein Biochemistry

Data over Dogma

“Our culture is focused on succeeding through the evaluation of data, not people. And in that, relationships can flourish and develop. So we bond and value each other in one objective—finding medicines to treat patients.”
