Explore the frontier of autophagy


Fun times, rigorous science

Together, we are a diverse and inclusive team at the forefront of autophagy research. We believe that scientists should be creative and share data both freely and selflessly. Our work is challenging, but we are committed to it and to one another.


Meet Gary Asmussen

Gary embodies the essence of acting with the urgency of a patient. From experience, he understands that drug discovery takes time; however, he is also keenly aware that each delayed decision to act, inefficient process, or unknown that could be known aggregates into weeks, months, and years that many patients do not have. He focuses his effort on how something can be done, rather than if it can be done.

What makes Casma great?


Medical breakthroughs for patients

Dan had an esteemed career in academic science with 25+ years of NIH-funded research, which included bringing a novel therapeutic forward through global collaboration. Through his tireless dedication, he additionally became a close advisor/friend of the patients and their families as they managed life with a rare disease. Dan listens, he is courageous in his pursuit of therapeutics, and believes that a medical breakthrough for five patients can be just as meaningful as one for 10,000.
