Platinum Virtual Sponsor

Our business is organised to deliver our strategic priorities sustainably, supporting continued scientific innovation and commercial success. We focus on the discovery, development and commercialisation of prescription medicines in Oncology and Biopharmaceuticals, including Cardiovascular, Renal & Metabolism, and Respiratory & Immunology.
Through our work in Biopharmaceuticals, we want to transform healthcare, change the lives of billions of people for the better and address some of the biggest healthcare challenges facing humankind. There remains a huge unmet need in treating people with chronic diseases. Our ambition is to stop the progress of these often degenerative, debilitating, and life-threatening conditions, achieve remission, and one day cure them.

We have a bold ambition to provide cures for cancer in every form. We are following the science to understand cancer and all its complexities to discover, develop and deliver life-changing treatments and increase the potential to save the lives of people around the world.

Our clinical strategy aims to transform survival by seeking to combat metastatic and resistant disease and providing options to treat early. We think differently about the underlying genetic causes of cancer. We are defining new biomarkers and therapeutic targets that cut across multiple tumour types. We are transforming the way people with cancer are diagnosed and treated by looking in new places, beyond traditional classifications and focusing on the properties of a tumour, not just its type.

Pfizer

Pfizer is one of the world's premier innovative biopharmaceutical companies, discovering, developing and providing over 170 different medicines and vaccines healthcare products to help improve the lives of millions of people in the UK and around the world every year.

Our purpose is grounded in our belief that all people deserve to live healthy lives. This drives our desire to provide medicines that are safe and effective.

After more than 170 years of treating and preventing disease, we’ve arrived at a new era; time of extraordinary focus on our science and the value it brings to people around the world.

Around the world, we strive to set the standard for quality, safety, and value in the discovery, development, and manufacture of medicines and vaccines that have the potential to save lives, prevent illness and improve health and wellbeing.

But we don’t achieve this alone. Collaborations with healthcare providers, patient communities, academia, and policy makers are fundamental to bringing new medicines to patients.

We focus our efforts in six core areas where we are best positioned to develop medicines for much needed therapies.

Anti-infectives, Inflammation and Immunology, internal medicine, Oncology, Rare Disease and vaccines.
