Research & Development
Pfizer Research at Cambridge, UK
Pfizer Neusentis Unit
Neusentis, part of Pfizer Limited, consolidates Pfizer’s Pain & Sensory Disorders and Regenerative Medicine Units into a new biotech unit in Cambridge, UK. Over the past few years, Pfizer has built world-leading expertise in the field of ion channels. Neusentis scientists focus this expertise on delivering new medicines across all forms of pain influenced by this mechanism. Additionally, they explore opportunities across sensory disorders in which there is a b mechanistic relationship to ion channels, such as auditory and visual disorders. With a number of potential medicines in the clinic, the unit’s colleagues are working hard to provide new therapies and treatment options for patients in pain.
In 2008 Pfizer took an industry-leading step with the creation of Regenerative Medicine. While there is still much to learn in this exciting field of science, we have come a very long way in three years. Through hard work, excellent science and b partnerships, the first ever patient in a Pfizer stem cell clinical study was dosed in 2011, in the MultiStem® study for ulcerative colitis. This study, and others from the Regenerative Medicine clinical portfolio, will continue to be taken forward by Neusentis.
Neusentis is more than the consolidation of research units. Its name, location and philosophy epitomise the future of research at Pfizer. It represents a team of scientists with endless curiosity and scientific courage, working in partnership with academic scientists in Cambridge and around the globe to change the lives of patients suffering from pain, other diseases and disorders for which there are no therapies or cures.
