|At Ironwood, we seek to transform knowledge into medicines that make a difference for patients.
Patients shape our business. They influence our drugmaking process, helping us to understand and address their unmet medical needs, whether we’re creating a new medicine or tackling the equally challenging task of delivering that medicine to people around the world.
Our employees shape our success. Since our founding in 1998, each of our employees has held shares in the company. Being owners of Ironwood means we are all careful stewards of our resources: we take a data-driven approach in which we celebrate definitive answers – whether those answers support holding steady or changing course – and we challenge every program to earn its way forward.
Our discovery and development processes have generated a product that’s approved in the United States and in the European Union, as well as a robust pipeline. As we continue to do drugmaking well, we hope to inspire the support of our shareholders and earn the right to do it again – building an enduring pharmaceutical company that understands and addresses people’s needs.
