Ready to join a team committed to changing the lives of families devastated by rare and life-threatening genetic diseases? Our team at AveXis, a Novartis company, is unified by a common motivation: to develop cutting-edge gene therapies with the potential to positively impact the lives of these patients and their loved ones. We are looking for passionate and dedicated individuals to share our vision and join us in this important mission to bring life-changing gene therapies to patients in need.


AveXis is dedicated to developing and commercializing novel treatments for patients suffering from rare and life-threatening neurological genetic diseases. Our initial product candidate, ZOLGENSMA® (onasemnogene abeparvovec-xioi)*, is our proprietary gene therapy currently in development for the treatment of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), the leading genetic cause of infant mortality. ZOLGENSMA is currently being reviewed by regulatory agencies in the United States, Europe and Japan for marketing approval in patients with SMA Type 1.


We are also pursuing novel treatments for other rare neurological diseases, including Rett syndrome (RTT) and a genetic form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) caused by mutations in the superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) gene.


We are head-quartered in Bannockburn, IL, with manufacturing facilities in the Chicago, IL, Durham, NC and Longmont, CO areas. Our R&D site is located in La Jolla, CA. European headquarters are located in Zurich, Switzerland, and AveXis KK is located in Tokyo, Japan.


* The brand name ZOLGENSMA® (onasemnogene abeparvovec-xioi) has been provisionally approved by the FDA for the investigational product AVXS-101, but the product itself has not received marketing authorization or Biologics License Application approval from any regulatory authorities.
