Elisa Pepicelli

“I came to work at Kiniksa for one main reason: the people.”

Elisa Pepicelli
Director, Internal Lab Operations
“People includes both the patients we serve and the driven, passionate colleagues I’m surrounded by every day. Throughout my life I’ve learned you are only as good as the people around you and Kiniksa epitomizes that each and every day. Everyone comes to work hard, be the best at what they do, and strive to do better, not only to help more patients, but also motivate everyone around them to in turn continue Kiniksa’s path to a generational company. I’ve been with Kiniksa for over 3 years and can truly say that it is the people that continue to inspire me each day.”
