About us

Amicus Therapeutics is a global, patient-dedicated biotechnology company focused on discovering, developing and delivering high-quality medicines for people living with rare metabolic diseases. Amicus is the Latin word for friend. This name signifies our collaborative approach to developing medicines by incorporating the patient perspective every step of the way. Our company was founded by an entrepreneur who embarked on a life-long journey to transform the lives of those living with devastating conditions when two of his children were diagnosed with a rare disease. That spirit of empathy, compassion, and tenacity permeates our culture and influences all aspects of our approach to advancing cutting-edge technologies.

What employees say

“Amicus is a terrific place to work! The passionate entrepreneurial spirit makes every day a unique opportunity to contribute to the future of medicine.

This opportunity to make a difference for people who are living with devastating disorders gives me a sense of purpose and the camaraderie with my colleagues gives me the strength to take on any challenge.

I feel that Amicus is very much a rare company that genuinely does care. It cares about its staff and those suffering from rare diseases and does what it says it will do – we put the patient at the heart of everything we do, they drive and motivate us.

I love working for an organization that puts people first and provides so many moments of inspiration and latitude for professional growth.”
