Vertex Pharmaceuticals Opens an Office in the Czech Republic

Ambassador  King hosted an event marking Vertex Pharmaceuticals office opening in the Czech Republic. “Although, sometimes we tend to focus more on large investments, I believe that even smaller companies can make a huge difference in the market, especially in the healthcare arena,” noted Ambassador King.

Vertex Pharmaceuticals is a global biotechnology company that invests in scientific innovation to create transformative medicines for people with serious and life-threatening diseases. The company discovered and developed the first medicines that target mutated CFTR protein – the underlying cause of cystic fibrosis (CF). It was founded by Joshua S.
