Our focus on scientific excellence and rapid execution aims to translate today’s discoveries into tomorrow’s medicines. We have U.S. offices in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Boston, New York and Raleigh, with small satellites in other parts of the country. We also have international offices in Montreal, Canada and Zug, Switzerland, and are expanding across Europe.
