About MCPHS University/Biogen
Biogen helped create an industry that has touched countless lives. We were among the world's first biotechnology companies, and today we are the oldest independent biotech firm in the world.From the start, when a group of scientists and venture capitalists were united by a new vision for serving unmet medical needs, the company's personality has reflected the multifaceted name of the industry we helped co-found: biotechnology. Biology is about life, about understanding the body's inner workings, about exploring new discoveries and insights to improve lives. Technology is about practical application, about making things work, about developing new products to help people. Biogen embodies both these worldviews. Scientific curiosity and courageous innovation helps us create new and important therapies; practicality makes us successful and vital to our patients. These values extend beyond our laboratories; our aim to discover better ways of doing things infuses all our work, from manufacturing and marketing to partnerships and human resources. At the same time, the practical application of our discoveries is what drives our scientists, as we seek treatments and therapies that can help p...atients live longer and better lives. At Biogen, we are proud of our more than 30 years of contributions to the biotechnology industry and look forward to continuing to shape the future of an industry that transforms scientific discovery into advances in patient care.
