The Centers for Therapeutic Innovation unit is aimed at forging seamless, highly impactful ties between pharma and academia, thus enabling the accelerated translation of innovative findings to the clinic. Pfizer’s ambition is to bridge the gap translating early science into clinical applications, by, for the first time, allowing investigators access to Pfizer’s extensive libraries and proprietary screening and antibody development technologies. In addition, academic collaborators will have the support of internal Pfizer scientists who can help match Pfizer resources to key researcher needs. CTI offers a differentiated approach, the incentives, operating model, and goals of which are all designed to focus on achieving a positive Proof of Mechanism (PoM) study in humans.

Pfizer Centers for Therapeutic Innovation will consist of several laboratories which combine the expertise and innovation of both Pfizer colleagues dedicated to a specific function, as well as ~ 15 post-docs assigned to sponsored programs. This initiative represents a significant opportunity for leading academic investigators and institutions to enable the fast, efficient translation of novel, innovative science into clinical candidates, and – eventually – approved therapeutics. We believe that the combination of the operating, financial resource and scientific access model partly described above will bring more and more novel programs to the clinic, ultimately creating significant benefit for the patient, for investigators, and for institutions.
