Life & Work in Cambridge, MA
In the summer of 2012, Pfizer Neuroscience moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts. This move placed the Neuroscience and Cardiovascular & Metabolic Disorders Research Units in the heart of the academic, biotechnology, and bioinnovation cluster of the Boston area.
For Pfizer Neuroscience, the move to Cambridge, MA provides an exceptional opportunity to enhance our efforts to develop new innovative medicines for neurologic and psychiatric disorders. With proximity to the outstanding environment for biomedical research, drug discovery, and academic medicine in the Boston area, we anticipate a much deeper and accelerated research program that translates the latest neuroscience into meaningful new medicines.
Pfizer Signs Agreement With MIT For Future Cambridge Research Center
Pfizer announced has entered into a 10-year lease agreement with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for more than 180,000 square feet in a new building under development in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Located at 610 Main Street South in Kendall Square, the new site will be the future location of Pfizer’s Cardiovascular, Metabolic and Endocrine Disease (CVMED) and Neuroscience Research Units. The relocation of the two Research Units will substantially boost Pfizer’s footprint in Cambridge, making it the second largest biopharmaceutical company in Massachusetts in terms of jobs.
“We were very deliberate in our choice to move to Cambridge, MA as a key part of our R&D strategy. By expanding our presence in one of the world’s great centers of scientific and medical innovation, we will provide the best environment for our researchers to invent the next generation of medicines in areas of greatest need, such as Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia, diabetes and cardiovascular disease,” said Rod MacKenzie, senior vice president and head of PharmaTherapeutics Research & Development. “We intend to foster productive formal and informal collaborations between our drug discovery experts and the outstanding scientists of Cambridge’s world class institutions. This is a very exciting period in Pfizer R&D.”
