Our Commitment to Patients

With patients at the core of everything we do, we are continuously seeking ways to improve the treatment paradigm for patients with seizure disorders.

Our dedicated team of professionals, scientists, and medical experts strive to demonstrate the value of ganaxolone as a potential therapy for children and adults afflicted with seizure disorders.

Patient Resources

We are committed to helping ensure resources and support are available for those impacted by seizure disorders. 


Telehealth allows people living with a rare epilepsy disorder and their caregivers to virtually connect with a healthcare provider from home or another location. Learn more about how telehealth can play a critical role in your hybrid care model.

CDKL5 is painful. It’s a hard, sad at times, thing that we face. When you have a relationship with people like Marinus and their researchers, you are able to help be a driving force behind that work.

Karen Utley, Mother to Samantha, President of International Foundation for CDKL5 Research

Marinus has been wonderful in that they are very proactive in working internally with U.S. based clinics that we work with and have the infrastructure to do clinical trials. One of the most difficult things is to navigate different healthcare systems and Marinus took that on and made it happen so that all of the different communities could participate.

Heidi Grabenstatter, Science Director at International Foundation for CDKL5 Research

My involvement with Marinus has always been based on my belief that they are the most patient-centric pharmaceutical company. The fact that they’re willing to share the voices of CDKL5 parents and their children shows their commitment.

Carol-Anne Partridge, Mother to Amber, Secretary of CDKL5 Alliance, Chair of CDKL5 UK

The first company that chooses to run a clinical trial for a rare disease is always a very unique company and special partner for the patient community. Most companies would stay away from a risky disease. When one company decides they’re willing to take a risk, they’re essentially building the field for others. In the CDKL5 community, that special company is Marinus.

Ana Mingorance, Chief Development Officer at LouLou Foundation

As a community, I truly believe we are being heard by the researchers and pharmaceutical companies like Marinus who are exploring treatments for CDKL5. That’s a very empowering feeling as a mom knowing I am making a difference.

Jonna Malone, Mother to Maya, President of CDKL5 Ireland

It means a great deal to have companies that are willing to do trials and research for TSC because TSC is a lifelong journey. I am grateful for the companies investing in research to give my kids a brighter future.

Shannon Grandia, Mother to Rylee, Jake, and Luke, TS Alliance

Folks like those working at Marinus really understand patient needs and if they are focused on the unmet patient needs, we are going to make good progress together.

Dr. Steve Roberds, Chief Scientific Officer at TS Alliance
