ACADIA Pharmaceuticals – Why Work For Us?


Committed to improving patients’ lives

At ACADIA (NASDAQ: ACAD), we share a passion for improving the lives of patients with central nervous system (CNS) disorders.

We recently received FDA approval for NUPLAZIDTM (pimavanserin), the first and only medicine approved for the treatment of hallucinations and delusions associated with Parkinson’s disease psychosis. We also are developing pimavanserin for Alzheimer’s disease psychosis and schizophrenia—additional areas with severe unmet medical needs. In addition, we have clinical-stage programs for chronic pain and glaucoma.

Our vision is to become the leading pharmaceutical company dedicated to the advancement of innovative medicines that improve the lives of patients with CNS disorders. Our history is rooted in science and strong leadership in CNS research. We have set ourselves apart by transforming our novel discoveries into important drugs and drug candidates that may make a meaningful impact on the lives of patients and the family members who care for them every day.
