Scientists at Vertex don’t see the impossible as an obstacle; they see it as a good place to start. By integrating information from biology, chemistry, biophysics and other areas, Vertex believes that it can increase the success of its research efforts and accelerate the drug discovery process.
Today, Vertex has a broad and diverse pipeline of potential medicines in development. And behind those medicines in development are an array of research-stage projects that may lead to clinical development opportunities in the years to come.
People who work at Vertex know we can make a real difference for patients by understanding the underlying cause of life-threatening diseases and using that knowledge to develop breakthrough medicines.
