Our People and Our Principles


We pride ourselves on making Codiak an amazing place to work and know that great ideas come from people who have a voice and who are challenged to think differently. Our team has embraced four beliefs that guide everything we do, every day.

Break Barriers

Breaking boundaries is what Codiak does. No one has ever made an exosome therapeutic. We had to figure out what we are doing from scratch.

Everyone is collaborative, which is very refreshing, very positive. Everyone supports each other. There is little competition between teams or projects – everyone is in this together.

Act with Urgency

There are millions of patients that are every day being told that they have a few weeks to live. To be able to have an impact on their lives is a big opportunity for us. Even if we can make one cancer patient go home without cancer, that would be a huge accomplishment.

– Sriram Sathy, Ph.D.
Vice President, Biology & Translational Science, Preclinical Research

Embrace Challenges

People here have a ‘can-do’ attitude. We don’t panic when something doesn’t work out or when the data tells us something we didn’t expect. Rather than fighting the data, we learn from the results and pivot to the most efficient path forward.

– Wendy Broom
Director, Oncology
