“Seeing our portfolio companies developing drugs for diseases that are neither easily diagnosed nor easily treated is awesome, and shows that we never back down from a challenge.”
Maribel focuses on operations at Third Rock, and provides administrative support to several of the firm's venture partners, entrepreneurs-in-residence and domain experts. She enjoys working at Third Rock because of the great atmosphere, which places significance on hard work while remembering not to take life too seriously. She is especially impacted by rare genetic disease stories, and enjoys hearing from patients directly impacted by our portfolio companies at our Rare Genetic Disease lunches.
Outside the office, Maribel practices American jiu jitsu, and her greatest accomplishment is earning her second Kyu Brown belt.
