Company Overview

Leaders in Complement
At Apellis, we are committed to developing transformative therapies for people living with a broad range of debilitating diseases by controlling complement, part of the body’s immune system.

Our work is rooted centrally at C3, which is the only target in the complement cascade that addresses all three pathways that can drive disease. Targeting C3 has broad platform potential to treat many diseases where patients have few or no treatment options available.

Bold at Our Core

Our company is formed by people who care, are fearless in the face of a challenge, love the work they do, are resourceful, and continually pursue the highest level of scientific integrity. These values guide every decision that we make as we work toward our vision of being a compassionate organization known for its revolutionary science and contributions to humankind.
