our values

Working at Iama therapeutics

Our core values root in excellence, innovation, integrity, equality, respect for diversity, and sustainability of our future generations.

Excellence: being outstanding or truly the best at something. We aim for excellence in everything we do.
Innovation: introducing new ideas, devices, or methods. We aim to create a new normality by disrupting the status quo.
Integrity: being honest and showing a consistent and uncompromising adherence to strong moral and ethical principles and values. We are true to ourselves and would do nothing that demeans or dishonors us.

Community development: promoting, sustaining, supporting and maintaining community action. We positively impact the brain disease community, as we seek to include individuals and families in every aspect of what we do.
Sustainability: meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. We understand the environmental impacts of our business and provide clear targets and solutions to the increasing demand.

At iama therapeutics, we offer equal employment opportunities to all qualified employees and candidates. In line with our values, we ensure equal opportunities in the selection and contractual treatment regardless of race, religion, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental disability, national origin, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.
