More on Pfizer

Welcome

Thanks for visiting my blog. I am Chair of INVOLVE - the UK's national advisory group on public involvement - and NIHR National Director for Public Participation and Engagement in Research. I was CEO at the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) from 2006 until 2011. My full profile can be found on the 'Biography' page. The views on here are all personal ones unless otherwise stated. I hope you enjoy some of the things I write and/or find a useful link or two along the way.

Ther’s a couple of good pieces in the FT (link will take you to the front page) about the Pfizer announcement yesterday.

Actually, it’s quite interesting reading the comments of Pfizer’s CEO as reported this morning.  They give some insight into the self-critical eye that pharma is taking on how it has done things in the past and how it needs to change.  Basic message:  ‘All the big (drug) bets are off.’

And it’s not all bad news on the Pfizer front as this news release from Cancer Research UK shows – their announcement about an initiative on stratified medicine which is receiving investment from Pfizer and Astra Zeneca.
