“We all know someone or have known someone touched by cancer. For me, losing my father to pancreatic cancer in 2018 makes working for an innovative oncology company, like 2seventy bio, immensely personal and incredibly meaningful. Cancer has the potential, now or in the future, to affect each of us profoundly. And how each individual navigates their cancer diagnosis and treatment journey or the diagnosis and treatment journey of a loved one is different. Through the patient advocacy function at 2seventy bio, we listen, acknowledge, and learn from the patient, care partner, and advocate experiences. We see each person we engage as a whole and full human, recognizing they are more than their cancer diagnosis…as more than a patient, as more than a care partner, as more than an advocate. And we commit to engaging in meaningful ways that honor those perspectives, needs, and expertise while informing and improving our business, our programs, and our people.

We don’t just simply care that we create transformational therapies, but we care HOW these therapies are created. We are about the approach.”
