“Ionis is proud to participate in the Accelerating Medicines Partnership. At Ionis, we know that sick people depend on us. We have a rich history of working closely with academic and industry partners to advance the understanding of complex diseases and develop precision medicine therapies. We are excited to contribute to this public-private partnership and do the same for heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). HFpEF has emerged as a major public health concern that demands such collaborations to understand disease mechanisms and develop innovative medicines.”

Vice President, Drug Discovery and Cardiovascular Franchise Research Leader
Ionis Pharmaceuticals, Inc.


“We are truly honored to be joining this global partnership to contribute to the clinical advances of heart failure detection. Although compelling progress has been made in the treatment of many forms of heart disease, death due to heart failure continues to rise nationally. This program fits perfectly with our mission and vision to provide pioneering diagnostics to help clinicians precisely identify heart failure earlier, so they can provide life-saving treatment for all patients throughout their care continuum. Joining the AMP® HF Program, Ultromics will redefine the heart failure pathway, and contribute to the goal of improving patient outcomes.”
