Senior Manager/Associate Director, FL HCP and Diagnostic Marketing


Epizyme, Inc. is a fully integrated commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company committed to its mission of rewriting treatment for cancer and other serious diseases through novel epigenetic medicines. In addition to an active research and discovery pipeline, Epizyme received U.S. FDA approval for the product, TAZVERIK™ (tazemetostat), for the treatment of patients aged 16 years and older with metastatic or locally advanced epithelioid sarcoma who are not eligible for complete resection. This indication was approved under accelerated approval based on overall response rate and duration of response. TAZVERIK™ also recently received accelerated approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for two distinct follicular lymphoma (FL) indications: 1) adult patients with relapsed or refractory FL whose tumors are positive for an EZH2 mutation as detected by an FDA-approved test and who have received at least two prior systemic therapies, and 2) adult patients with relapsed or refractory FL who have no satisfactory alternative treatment options.  


Continued approval for these indications is contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in ongoing confirmatory trials. The company is also exploring the treatment potential of tazemetostat in investigational clinical trials in other solid tumors and hematological malignancies, as a monotherapy and combination therapy in both relapsed and front-line disease settings. By focusing on the genetic drivers of disease, Epizyme seeks to match medicines with the patients who need them. For more information, visit
