Acorda Therapeutics

Acorda Therapeutics is a publicly traded (NASDAQ: ACOR) biotechnology company whose mission is to develop therapies that restore neurological function and improve the lives of people with neurological disorders.

We started our company in 1995 as a network of scientists, physicians and business people with a common belief that sharing ideas and information could lead to innovative medical advances for people with neurological disorders.

We have since evolved into a commercial-stage biotechnology company, successfully developing and commercializing important therapies that advance the care of people affected by neurological conditions. We achieve our goals by:

• investing in research and development

• collaborating closely with the patient, medical and scientific communities

• retaining employees with compassion and commitment

Acorda has been voted one of the best companies to work for in New York for the past five years in a row, as a result of our dynamic environment, strong corporate culture, significant emphasis on research and development, and a robust product pipeline. We are positioned to be an industry leader, poised for exceptional growth.
