Making sure you feel good is Pfizer’s passion. With 17 of the world’s Top 20 burdens of illness being currently addressed by its products and pipeline, Pfizer is committed to help individuals and their loved ones live longer, more healthy and enjoyable lives.
With over 3,000 people employed at its global manufacturing headquarters in the region, Pfizer makes the most of Southwest Michigan’s history of health science expertise that started with the discovery of the modern pill in Kalamazoo in 1885.
From discovery to shelf, the region’s bioscience research and development companies, contract research organizations and commercialization experts are currently working to prevent and treat most human diseases and viruses, with technology focused on such areas as brain tumors and organ rejection. Today, a virtual pharmaceutical company exists within the community. Southwest Michigan First can connect you to it.
