About Us

Critical Unmet

Discover Alkermes

At Alkermes, we apply our deep neuroscience expertise to develop medicines designed to help people living with complex and difficult-to-treat psychiatric and neurological disorders. With our portfolio of marketed medicines and investigational pipeline candidates, we seek to make a meaningful difference in the way people manage their diseases. Our patient-inspired science, integrated research strategy, sophisticated development capabilities and specialized commercial infrastructure enable us to pursue the development and commercialization of innovative new medicines, including those for people with conditions that have traditionally been overlooked or stigmatized.

Our greatest strengths at Alkermes are our people and our inherent empathy for patients, families and caregivers. Neurological and psychiatric disorders strike people at the core of who they are and impact many facets of their lives. We work with urgency to develop new treatment options for people living with these conditions.

Our Purpose & Values

Our core values and our commitment to helping improve the lives of people living with complex psychiatric and neurological disorders guide and define our culture.
With collaboration at our core, we strive to value every person and respect each voice.
We are beyond passionate. Our commitment to our employees and the many people and communities we serve keeps us moving forward every day.
