Explore our spaces 

Our science is state of the art — and so are our labs, manufacturing facilities and workspaces. Each research site and office is designed to be both environmentally and employee friendly.  


Global headquarters

Our labs, office and manufacturing center in Boston are in the Seaport District and close to many transportation hubs. We offer commuting perks, as well as an on-site café (with an outdoor terrace and views of the harbor) and gym. The Seaport is also home to the new Jeffrey Leiden Center for Cell and Genetic Therapies.  



San Diego 

Our R&D labs in San Diego are located north of downtown in La Jolla, on the Torrey Pines Mesa, with UC San Diego, the Scripps Research Institute and many other biotech companies and research institutes nearby. There’s ample outdoor space, and we’re close to Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and La Jolla Shores — for those who want to take a break to surf, swim or go for a run through the park or along the beach.

Headquarters outside of the U.S. (International HQ) 

London is home to our headquarters for our international operations. Our offices on the Paddington Central campus are close to many transportation hubs and a variety of restaurants and cafés. We offer commuting perks as well as gym memberships (all within a 10-minute walk). All employees have access to a shared rooftop terrace.
