EMD Lexigen Research Center Company Profile

23:53 EST 11th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

EMD Lexigen Research Center Corp. Founded in 1992 as a joint venture with Fuji Photo Film Ltd., EMD Lexigen Research Center Corp. (EMD Lexigen for short) was formed to screen Fuji’s chemical library for drug activities, with an initial focus on immune disorders and cancer.
Our activities have evolved significantly since then. Having gained independence from Fuji Photo Film in 1997, EMD Lexigen has honed its activities to focus on developing proprietary immunocytokine and Fc-X fusion protein technologies for treatment of life-threatening diseases such as cancer and AIDS.
EMD Lexigen’s innovative technology and approach to oncology quickly drew the attention of the pharmaceutical community, including Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, which ultimately acquired EMD Lexigen in 1999.
EMD Lexigen is a subsidiary of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany. Our research center, located in the Route 128 Biotech Corridor near Boston, Mass., is the hub for Merck KGaA’s biological pharmaceutical research activities, emphasizing advanced pharmaceutical platform technologies and novel drugs.
With access to the Boston area’s rich combination of world-class academic and research institutions and highly skilled workforce, we have built a company that thrives on innovation, with employees dedicated to improving people’s lives.
