We target diseases that lack effective therapies and affect relatively small numbers of patients, many of whom are children.

BioMarin will continue to focus on advancing therapies that are the first or best of their kind.

These engineers, technicians, scientists and support staff build and maintain BioMarin’s cutting-edge manufacturing processes and sites, provide quality assurance and quality control to ensure we meet regulatory standards, and procure the needed goods and services to support manufacturing and coordinating the worldwide movement of our drugs to patients.
