Pfizer Inc: Working together for a healthier world™
At Pfizer Inc., we apply science and our global resources to improve health and well-being at every stage of life. We strive to set the standard for quality, safety and value in the discovery, development and manufacturing of medicines for people and animals.
Today, Pfizer is an even more diversified health care company because of its acquisition of Wyeth. The combined company has a robust and growing pipeline with product offerings in human, animal, and consumer health, including vaccines, biologics, small molecules and nutrition across the developed and emerging markets. It has medicines in numerous growing therapeutic areas, premier scientific and manufacturing capabilities and a leading global presence.
The combined company has a robust and growing pipeline of biopharmaceutical development projects to help patients in critical areas, including Alzheimer’s disease, oncology, pain, neuroscience, diabetes and inflammation. The combination of top scientists from both companies, as well as leading scientific and manufacturing capabilities, and a global network of proof-of-concept clinical development centers, has greatly enhanced the company’s ability to innovate.
To maximize new opportunities in biomedical research, and bring more innovative medicines to more patients more quickly, Pfizer has created two distinct research organizations. The PharmaTherapeutics Research & Development Group focuses on the discovery of small molecules and related modalities; and The BioTherapeutics Research & Development Group focuses on large-molecule research, including vaccines.
Pfizer has also developed an enhanced commercial operating structure with nine diverse health care businesses: Primary Care, Specialty Care, Oncology, Emerging Markets, Established Products, Consumer Healthcare, Nutrition, Animal Health and Capsugel. Each of these businesses is led by an executive with clear accountability for results—from product development following proof of concept to providing access to patients and through to the end of the product's life cycle. The businesses are provided with the resources to pursue attractive growth opportunities and to deliver benefits to all who rely on us around the world.
Every day, Pfizer colleagues work across developed and emerging markets to advance wellness, prevention, treatments and cures. Consistent with our responsibility as the world’s leading biopharmaceutical company, we also collaborate with health care providers, governments and local communities to support and expand access to reliable, affordable health care around the world. For more than 150 years, Pfizer has worked to make a difference for all who rely on us.
