At Vertex, our cystic fibrosis program is built on a foundation that goes back to 1999.
“Most people said tackling the cystic fibrosis problem was impossible – but we were never intimidated,” says Paul Negulescu, Senior Vice President, Research. “Throughout the journey, we faced setbacks, but we always kept going because challenges excited us and turned us into the family we are today.”
Listen to Paul share more about the journey his team has taken over the past two decades and how patients have inspired them throughout the years.
