Patients & Families

We are inspired by the unique needs of patients affected by a range of complex metabolic diseases – and the potential to deliver first-in-class therapies. The Zafgen team’s commitment to patients guides our work, and we come to work each day knowing patients and their families are depending on us. We share their sense of urgency and their hope.

Patient Stories

Every day, as we work to advance therapies to address serious unmet needs for complex metabolic disorders, patients and their families are at the center of our thoughts and our sense of urgency. Their experiences, resilience and stories inspire our work and strengthen our commitment.
