Careers at Abata

We welcome Monday mornings

Abata’s Values

Our values reflect our everyday guiding principles, our motivation, our culture. We can apply these in both moments of joy and moments of duress. They hold true to the spirit of our team.

Principally Cures

We are bold in our mission and purpose, and we aim for nothing less than a transformative impact on people’s lives.

Individually Empowered,
Collectively Limitless

We have trust in one another as individuals; we are accountable and empowered. Working together as a team, we are unstoppable.

Strengthened by Differences

Without differences, we cannot succeed. We are an open and inclusive team, and we believe what we each bring as individuals is invaluable.

Fundamentally Audacious

We are audacious by nature – emboldened by curiosity and driven to take courageous, yet carefully considered risks.

Inquisitive in Debate,
Unified in Quest

We embrace challenge and encourage – even relish in – respectful debate, and we emerge unified in our path forward as a team.

Be Kind 

We are universally kind – to each other and in how we relate to the world. We highlight this value in a different color so it stands out, because we believe it must guide all of our actions and interactions. There is strength in kindness.

“I believe in the fundamental principles of our science. Tregs offer the hope of being a powerful and long-lasting therapy. Our leadership team and founders have a track record of success. They are giants in their fields, and they get stuff done. No ego, just people driven to deliver new medicines to patients who need them. “

Devan Moodley, Ph.D – Director, Systems Immunology

“This is a team of good people in both senses of the term: they are good at what they do and they aim to do good by each other and by patients. I am very excited to work with this team to turn TCR-transduced Treg therapy from an idea into a reality. I can’t wait to get to the stage where we can actually start treating patients – first in MS and then in other diseases.”

Jefte Drijvers, M.D., Ph.D. – Associate Director, MS Program Lead

“Management professionals will tell you that to build a successful company there must be enough resources, thoughtful processes, and clear priorities. What they fail to mention is that without great people you can’t fulfill any of those requirements. I am thrilled to be working at Abata not only because we are putting in place proper resources, processes and priorities, but we also have incredibly talented and collaborative people to make our efforts successful.”

Eugene Antipov, Ph.D – Sr. Director, Process Development

We embrace heterogeneity and are inclusive of every race, gender, age, religion, identity, and experience and inspired by what each individual brings to our team.
