Sr. Manager, Regulatory Affairs

About Us:

We are Larimar Therapeutics, based in the Philadelphia area, and committed to discovering and developing therapeutics to dramatically improve the lives of patients with complex rare diseases. At Larimar, we embrace everyone’s contribution to our Mission. Our values connect us and ensure we communicate openly, treat each other with respect, help us grow from our successes and failures, and innovate. If you are searching for a company where urgency, agility, and commitment to science win the day – we welcome you!

We are a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing treatments for patients suffering from complex rare diseases using its novel cell penetrating peptide technology platform. Our lead product candidate, CTI-1601, is a subcutaneously administered, recombinant fusion protein intended to deliver human frataxin (FXN), an essential protein to the mitochondria of patients with Friedreich’s ataxia. Friedreich’s ataxia is a rare, progressive and fatal disease in which patients are unable to produce sufficient FXN due to a genetic abnormality. 

We have assembled an experienced management team, each of whom has over 20 years of pharmaceutical industry experience and about 40 employees. Our management team, employees, and consultants have significant expertise in discovery, nonclinical and clinical development, regulatory affairs and the development of manufacturing processes utilizing good manufacturing practices (GMPs). 

Our strategy is to become a leader in the treatment of rare diseases by leveraging our technology platform and applying the team’s know how and expertise to the development of CTI-1601 and other future pipeline programs.
