Why Casma?

At Casma, we are pioneering novel strategies to boost autophagy to arrest or reverse the progression of a wide range of diseases. We believe our work will one day enable people with diseases that are neglected or inadequately treated to live their lives to the fullest.

We believe in the power of individual employees and the strength of the Casma team to have a positive impact on the lives of patients and their families.

Why Me?

We are united by a commitment to focus our energies and talent every day to discover solutions for patients.
