Every day, people living with serious diseases strive to be more than their disease — to be defined by what they can dream and hope and achieve, not by what limits them. Our commitment to people with serious diseases is uncompromising and goes beyond our R&D and medicines.
Working with the pain community
We’re focused on researching and discovering potential medicines aimed at selectively targeting the underlying cause of pain response, including acute or chronic severe pain caused by a variety of conditions. Vertex seeks to identify opportunities where we can support, empower, learn from and engage with the pain community, and ensure their voices are represented and incorporated into all that we do.
Engaging with the pain community
In 2021, we sponsored the U.S. Pain Foundation's KNOWvember campaign, which focused on neuropathic pain. We’re proud to support U.S. Pain’s Invisible Project publications on acute to chronic pain, and neuropathic pain.
