Pfizer knows about innovation. The pharmaceutical company has a leading portfolio of more than 30 products and medicines that support wellness and prevention, as well as treatments for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and a broad range of other therapeutic areas.

As a generous sponsor of the School’s Innovation Lecture Series, Pfizer supported an April 3 talk by Joseph M. DeSimone, PhD, Chancellor’s Eminent Professor of Chemistry at UNC, about “The Cost-Effective Design of Vaccines and Therapeutics.”
