Life at Alkahest

Our Vision: Therapies Born from the Science of Aging

At Alkahest, we strive to lead the way towards effective therapies for patients suffering from diseases associated with the detrimental processes of aging. We believe that as an industry, we simply haven’t done enough to help drive solutions for the most under-treated and devastating diseases affecting this growing demographic. We want to help. For all of the great progress we have made so far, we credit our dedicated and impassioned team for driving our successes. We know we have a lot further to go, and we’re ready for the long haul.

Our positive team spirit and collaborative culture are unlike any I’ve ever seen in another workplace. Employees genuinely care about one another and our camaraderie is reflected in all of our daily interactions. It’s so inspiring and gratifying to be part of a group that works so well together as a team.
Tammy Kent, VP Human Resources & Operations

Our culture is warm and supportive, genuine and ethical, rigorous and scientific, and collaborative yet entrepreneurial. Based in Silicon Valley, home to many leaders in the biotechnology industry, the heart of our culture is scientific innovation. We work hard, yet we have fun while we’re doing so. We are passionate about both our collegial atmosphere as well as working together on cutting-edge therapies that will change the lives of patients.
