At Vertex, we bring together the brightest minds in the relentless pursuit of creating transformative medicines for people with serious and life-threatening diseases. Founded in 1989 in Cambridge, Massachusetts we are one of only a handful of biotechnology companies founded since 1976 that has discovered and developed four or more approved medicines in our own labs. In addition to the four medicines we’ve developed to treat the underlying cause of cystic fibrosis, we have ongoing research programs focused on the underlying mechanisms of other serious diseases.
Our International headquarters are located in London, UK, our U.S. headquarters are in Boston’s Innovation District, and we have research and development (R&D) sites and commercial offices in the U.S., Europe, Canada, Australia and Latin America. With more than 60% of our employees dedicated to R&D, we are consistently recognized as one of the industry’s top places to work, including eleven consecutive years on Science magazine’s Top Employers list and the best place to work for LGBTQ+ equality by the Human Rights Campaign.
