Fighting with Fire: For Us, It's Personal

“There’s a reason families living with Dravet call themselves ‘warriors.’ These parents are fighting for their children. I am a father and would move heaven and earth to protect my children. Stoke is fighting right along with those parents, using science as a weapon.”

– Javier Avendaño, Stoke alumnus and person living with epilepsy

It's About More than Great Science

“I had a vision of what we could be as a company – how we could be different and better than others. If the science is great and the culture or the people aren’t equally great, that’s not enough for me.”

– Isabel Aznarez, Ph.D., co-founder and Group Vice President of Discovery Research
