Our Culture

    Development Scientist
  • At PepGen, the collaborative spirit and dedication to science inspires me every day.

    I value our shared commitment to helping patients with rare neuromuscular diseases, and it’s this tangible impact of our work that keeps me motivated. When I’m not in the lab, I enjoy spending time outdoors going on hikes or runs around Boston.
