“Neuroendocrinology has traditionally been an underserved discipline in that it doesn’t get the level of research funding many other disciplines do. I like that Crinetics recognized this from the start and pours so much effort and energy into making up for that. Rare endocrine diseases can have cascading effects on patients’ health and lives. Contributing to the solutions is rewarding work.”
