Story of the Argonauts

The name argenx comes from the ancient myth of the Argonauts – one of the first stories on record recognizing the power of the team rather than one hero. The Argonauts set out in a small boat on a wide ocean on a mission to find the golden fleece. This was a seemingly impossible task but thanks to the collective effort of the team and the unique contribution of each individual, the Argonauts were able to achieve the unthinkable.

Similar to the Argonauts, the people of argenx are on a challenging quest that can be successfully navigated through the power of collaboration – the quest to engineer life-changing immunology solutions.

We are reaching patients through immunology innovation.

Our cultural pillars guide our business relationships and collaborations both within and beyond our walls.

We thrive on curiosity and trust in the power of the team to help us identify immunology breakthroughs. We are inspired by patients to translate these breakthroughs into medicines.

The resilience and hope of patients gives us purpose, empowering us to work with urgency because we know they are waiting.
