About Us

Focused on
Critical Unmet

Discover Alkermes

Alkermes is focused on developing innovative medicines that aim to address unmet needs of people living with serious mental illness, addiction and cancer. As a fully-integrated global biopharmaceutical company, we apply our scientific expertise and proprietary technologies to develop products that are designed to make a meaningful difference in the way people manage their diseases.

Beyond our central mission to develop medicines, we believe in championing approaches to treatment that account for the multitude of factors that affect outcomes for patients, caregivers and communities. In addition to our scientific pursuits, we are committed to patient engagement, disease education and awareness and advocacy for important policies that support equitable access to treatment options.

We believe that being a positive force for change begins when we dare to expect more – of medicines, of our healthcare system and of ourselves – as we seek to reset expectations of what constitutes successful management of complex diseases.

Our Purpose & Values

Our core values and our commitment to helping improve the lives of people living with serious mental illness, addiction and cancer 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.

Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging

Alkermes is committed to diversity, inclusion and belonging (DIB) in various aspects of our business. We strive to foster an environment of equality and compassion, where all voices are respected and valued. It is important to our mission and our ethos as an organization that we attract and retain diverse candidates and perspectives. We recently established a DIB Executive Committee to focus on assessing our current DIB efforts and expanding upon them and other such efforts in the future. Our belief in the importance of DIB extends beyond our employees; we are committed to advancing diversity and inclusion in our clinical trials, seeking out diverse suppliers, and supporting organizations that share our commitment to equity and inclusion in our healthcare system and our communities.
