Centers for Therapeutic Innovation (CTI)
Pfizer’s CTI is a unique model for academic-industry collaboration, designed to bridge the gap between early scientific discovery and its translation into new medicines.
A key aspect of CTI is its local centers in biomedical research hubs that enable Pfizer and academic teams to work side by side. This model represents a significant departure from the traditional lengthy and linear process of target discovery to eventual drug development.
Helping patients get access to our medicines worldwide
For more than 25 years, we have offered a number of assistance programs to help eligible patients access their prescription medicines. These programs have helped connect millions of uninsured and underinsured patients to the medications they need.
Our comprehensive assistance program, Pfizer RxPathways®, provides a range of support services, including insurance counseling, co-pay assistance, and access to medicines for free or at a savings.
We also support other organizations that focus on prescription access. In 2014 alone, we donated $6.3 million to US co-pay foundations for life-saving cancer medicines.
