Shawn’s journey with us has been nothing short of remarkable, and we’re excited to shine a spotlight on his contributions.

Shawn’s connection to our mission and vision runs deep. He resonates with the first word of our vision statement, “REVOLUTIONIZE,” which symbolizes the transformative nature of Kymeta’s work.
