We Are Vertex

Who We Are

Vertex is a global biotechnology company that focuses on discovering, developing and bringing innovative medicines to people with serious diseases so they can lead better lives. In pursuit of this mission, we are advancing a robust research pipeline that includes potentially transformative treatments for cystic fibrosis, pain, sickle cell disease, beta thalassemia, alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, APOL1-mediated kidney disease, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, type 1 diabetes and more.

Founded in 1989 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Vertex now has research and development sites and commercial offices around the world, with our headquarters in Boston and London. We invest most of our resources back into our research and development engine and we take community engagement as seriously as we take our science, offering a variety of programs to give back to the communities where we live and work. Vertex is consistently recognized as one of the industry's top places to work, including 13 consecutive years on Science magazine's Top Employer list.
