Associate Director, Regulatory Affairs

Mirum focuses on finding and developing drugs for difficult to treat liver diseases.  Our lead program is focused on two severe liver diseases in children, Alagille Syndrome and progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis (PFIC).  Both conditions can result in severe itching, liver damage and a need for liver transplant.  Based on a wealth of data from clinical trials spanning multiple years and involving more than one hundred patients, we believe our approach can address the underlying cause of symptoms and liver damage.  Our goal is to give families their lives back.
