New ABFO Member Company Open Job Posting. Accounting Manager, Mirum Pharmaceuticals, Inc.


Accounting Manager
Mirum Pharmaceuticals  Foster City, California, United States  Remote

Mirum is focused on identifying and developing medications for difficult-to-treat liver diseases. Our late-stage programs are focused on cholestatic liver diseases in children and adults. The symptoms of these rare diseases are burdensome for both the patient and their families and can result in severe itching, liver damage, and often a need for a liver transplant. Based on a wealth of data from clinical trials spanning multiple years and involving more than one hundred patients, we believe our approach can address the underlying cause of the symptoms and liver damage associated with the diseases. Our goal is to give families their lives back.
