Pfizer has a long and proud history of being part of world-class science in the UK. Our site in Sandwich, Kent was one of the world’s first mass-production facilities for penicillin back in the 1950s and continues to be an important location for Pfizer over 65 years later. During the last 20 years, our scientists in Sandwich have discovered new treatments for important disease areas and disorders including heart disease, HIV and migraine.

In addition to our research and development (R&D) centre in Sandwich, and Devices Centre of Excellence (DCoE) in Cambridge, we also invest time, knowledge and money, working alongside British science. During 2018 we were involved in 104 research and development collaborations and alliances working with scientists, academics and clinicians throughout the UK.
