Supporting and Engaging Our Communities


At Cytokinetics, we are passionate about helping improve lives in the communities we serve. We are inspired by the patients, caregivers and advocates in these communities who fearlessly fight every day, and we’re proud to help support their goals and advocate alongside them.

We are proud to partner with global, national and local organizations on a variety of initiatives. We see our partnerships as more than just financial support, but as a fundamental part of our mission which enables our mutual success. As a patient-centric organization, we rely on an approach where clinical outcomes, patient experiences and patients’ goals for care intersect. To ensure key departments throughout our organization are represented in our decision making and engaged with the advocacy community, we have assembled a team of multi-disciplinary department leaders who collaborate on our advocacy strategy and planning.

We support organizations in cardiovascular diseases including heart failure and hypertrophic cardiomyopathies, and neuromuscular diseases including ALS and SMA. Our goals for partnering with patient advocacy groups are to:

  • Elevate Patient and Caregiver Voices
  • Drive Public Policy Advancements
  • Champion Better Care, Access and Patient Services
  • Raise Awareness and Increase Understanding of the Burden of Disease
  • Support Fundraising Efforts and Community Education
