R&D: Collaborating to Give Hope

Pfizer Inc.'s purpose is to innovate to bring therapies that significantly improve patients' lives. R&D is at the heart of fulfilling Pfizer's purpose as we work to translate advanced science and technologies into the therapies that matter most.

We focus our efforts in core areas where we believe Pfizer is best positioned to bring unique therapies for patients such as chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, vaccines, oncology, neuroscience and pain, cardiovascular and metabolic disease and rare diseases.

We know that it takes more than just great science to deliver meaningful new therapies. Our approach is to collaborate in new and dynamic ways with academic scientists, patient foundations, governments, other biopharmaceutical companies and healthcare professionals. Through our partnerships we offer the possibility of a healthier world.
