What is Pfizer’s Centers for Therapeutic Innovation?

Established in 2010, Pfizer’s Centers for Therapeutic Innovation (CTI) was founded on the notion that our current scientific and global health challenges are too complex for any one player in the healthcare ecosystem to solve alone. We believe that collaboration is critical to success. CTI collaborates with academic institutions and investigators to push forward great science, using the depth and breadth of the Pfizer enterprise to accelerate concepts into viable therapies with breakthrough potential for patients.
