About the Pfizer Healthcare Hub: London

The ‘Pfizer Healthcare Hub: London’ aims to help companies who have demonstrated their potential to transform the lives of patients through digital innovation by connecting them to expertise within Pfizer and Pfizer’s networks in the UK and beyond.
 

 

As part of a global network of Pfizer Healthcare Hubs, the initiative aims to work with some of the best and brightest health tech start-ups, pursuing the vision of transforming people’s lives through innovative solutions to real-world problems.

 

We need to get smarter at harnessing and deploying innovation into our health service, which is why big business and start-ups need to collaborate more closely together."
