What Intellia Stands For?
At Intellia, our mission is to develop potentially curative genome editing treatments that can positively transform the lives of people living with severe and life-threating diseases.
We push boundaries. We are focused on positively disrupting health care treatment of patients with genomic diseases. The values we live by and drivers we look for are:
One is respect for individuals; our unique qualities and strengths; our own ways to understand, learn and improve. One is our single-minded determination to excel; to succeed together. One is you and us trusting and counting on every single one of us.
Explore because we seek new ways to tackle disease. Explore with unbounded mindsfree from assumptions, open to ideas.
Explore by staying curious, by pushing boundaries, overcoming obstacles. Explore means thinking of new ways.
Disrupt by thinking courageouslyand creating a better future. Disrupt by defying conformity; interrogating the status quo; questioning our momentum. Disrupt with challenging thoughtswith that breed of skepticism that shows you have better solutions.
Deliver with your focus on the objective and your determination to complete the task. Deliver by advancing relentlessly and by maintaining high standardseven when nobody is watching.
Deliver by staying accountable and pulling your weight. Deliver because patients are counting on us to make the promise reality. Get it done.
