What propels us forward ...

"I am proud to be part of the Civetta team. Together, we are on a journey to discover novel medicines that truly improve people’s lives. I am excited to see how far and how fast our propellers can take us there. As Albert Einstein said, “A ship is always safe at shore but that is not what it’s built for.”
Joe Kelleher, Ph.D.
Vice President, Biology
“Enthusiasm is the electric current that keeps the engine of life going at top speed. Enthusiasm is the very propeller of progress." -- B.C. Forbes. Its invigorating to work with smart, engaging, enthusiastic scientists as we build the capability to harness propeller proteins for new therapies."

Head, Data Sciences
“But I say to you that when you work you fulfill a part of earth's furthest dream, assigned to you when that dream was born.” -- Kahil Gibran's The Prophet. I've always loved science, and I feel especially privileged to work with the amazing Civettizens as we navigate this novel class of proteins.

"I am honored by the opportunity to be at the forefront of science, working to discover new medicines that bring therapeutic benefit to patients. This humbling responsibility propels me forward each and every day to work with my fellow Civettizens and contribute to the understanding of this novel protein class through the power of chemical biology."
Adam Hendricks, Ph.D.
Associate Director, Chemical Biology
"We all know someone - be it a family member, friend, or colleague - who has been touched by disease. It is my hope that Civetta's breakthroughs lead to therapeutics that will have a profound impact on patients’ lives."
