Our Mission

Every day, the Imara team works to strengthen the lives of patients around the world, including those in underserved regions, through the development of innovative & accessible therapies for hemoglobinopathies.

Imara means strength in Swahili. We understand that driving positive change for patients, their families and the broader communities affected by sickle cell disease and beta-thalassemia takes strength. Our strength comes from our commitment to improving the lives of patients.
