Collaborating on clinical trials and research
Working with healthcare professionals (HCPs) is an essential part or our efforts to develop new medicines and vaccines. These relationships help us understand both patient needs and the benefit and risks of our products.
Healthcare professionals help us by identifying potential volunteers for clinical trials, administer the investigational medicine or vaccine to the patients, and monitor the results. In this way their unique insight and knowledge is vital to the development of new treatments.
We have a commitment to publicly disclose the research payments that are made to healthcare professionals and to their institutions for conducting clinical research.
At the core of these relationships is a shared concern for improving the health of patients, based on our values of transparency, respect, integrity and patient focus.
