Santarus invests in their employees and that makes us feel like valued members of the team. I also enjoy being exposed to many different facets of the business. It helps me continue to build on the breadth of knowledge that is needed to stay competitive in an industry that is constantly evolving."

Director, Project Management
"The culture at Santarus is one that is open and collegial. People understand and respect one another. As a clinician, one of the concerns I had when I made the transition from private practice to industry, was whether or not I'd still be involved in working to improve the lives of patients. As a drug developer at Santarus, I'm very fortunate to still have that opportunity."
Michael Huang, M.D.

"At Santarus, I am challenged daily to increase my knowledge and to take on new responsibilities. I work with key opinion leaders, primary care physicians, specialists and clinical trial sites. I grow every day – both professionally and intellectually. The better job I can do communicating and educating the medical community, the more likely I can facilitate change. If I can make a patient's life better, that is very meaningful to me."
