Who We Are

The first thing you'll notice about Vertex is that we are not a conventional pharmaceutical company. Each and every person at Vertex is driven by a passion for fearless innovation and a bold desire to transform the lives of millions with new medicines. Together, by creating new possibilities in medicine, our employees are quite literally changing the world.

In addition to our clinical development programs focused on cystic fibrosis, Vertex scientists are working on more than a dozen ongoing research programs aimed at other serious and life-threatening diseases. Our development pipeline includes several investigational medicines that have the potential to transform the treatment of serious diseases. Every day brings us a step closer to getting patients the medicines they need and potentially changing their lives in previously unimaginable ways. It's a demanding yet incredibly rewarding experience that cannot help but change your life in the process, too.

We employ the industry's best and brightest people at locations around the world – all of us working toward tomorrow's breakthrough medicines.

"Vertex is not a technology company. It's a people company. Technology is not transformative – people are. People are the only ones that can transform anything."
--- Dr. Joshua Boger, Ph.D., Vertex Founder

We realize that creating tomorrow's breakthrough medicines cannot always happen through the work of Vertex alone. With that in mind, we have established a global network that connects more than 500 of the world's leading researchers, academic centers and companies in open collaboration. This networked approach gives Vertex access to many of the most exciting emerging technologies in the world and helps accelerate our understanding of disease, and subsequently, the discovery, development and commercialization of new medicines.
