Come and be a part of our Reimbursement Team!

Who is Omeros?

True innovation requires the right people, and that's what we have at Omeros - smart, hard-working and creative individuals who collaborate and drive to achieve what has not yet been done. We see strength in diversity - diversity in thought, expertise and experience.

We have taken a similar approach in structuring our company. While many biotechs pursue a single therapeutic area or scientific platform, we are strategically building a deep and diverse pipeline of first-in-class small-molecule and antibody therapeutics. The strength of our scientific discoveries and exclusive intellectual property positions enable our pipeline programs to target highly promising receptors and enzymes that others have not been able to develop.

Although cutting across a wide and diverse range of disorders and therapeutic indications - some orphan, others large-market and many for which there are no approved treatments - all of our drugs on the market and in development target critical unmet needs to improve the lives of patients in meaningful ways.
