The industry's best and brightest people are currently part of the Vertex team — all working toward tomorrow's breakthrough medicines. People come to Vertex for a number of reasons but remain at the company because each and every employee has the opportunity to make a real contribution to the discovery, development and commercialization of new medicines. We also realize that creating tomorrow’s breakthrough medicines cannot happen through the work of Vertex alone. With that in mind, Vertex has established a global network that connects hundreds of the world’s leading researchers, academic centers and companies in open collaboration. Together, Vertex and our collaborators challenge the unknown and aim to extend the reach of science.
