At Pfizer Global Research & Development (PGRD), Pfizer’s visionary discovery and development division and the largest research-based biomedical and pharmaceutical company in the world, we're not content waiting to witness the evolution of our industry.

And, today, with a broad research pipeline that spans many therapeutic areas, we are determined to bring even more cures to the marketplace.
But there is much more work to be done and we can’t do it alone. We’re always seeking those who share our belief that science can improve our world, that by working together we can bring exciting new therapies to patients on a global scale and forever change the way we improve the health and well-being of all people.
