Nektar Therapeutics Company Profile

15:31 EST 16th February 2019 | BioPortfolio

We are a biopharmaceutical company with a different approach to medicine. We develop drugs that are easier to take, safer to use, longer lasting and more effective. We look closely at existing therapies, and leverage our knowledge and extensive development expertise to evaluate how they can more effectively impact patients’ lives. Just over 15 years ago, our company was founded on breakthrough ideas that changed the way people thought about disease treatment and introduced new and exciting ways to increase the therapeutic value of medicines. Today, we are developing our own high-value, proprietary products as well as highly differentiated products in partnership with leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. Our product ideas come from a multi-disciplinary team of inventive thinkers and problem solvers. We are fortunate to have world-leading scientists on our research and development staff and a company culture that nurtures innovation. Our development programs focus on products that fill unmet needs in diabetes, infectious disease, oncology, and eventually other areas, where they can have significant impact. We collaborate with partners who recognize the value we bring to product development. By sharing our assets and intellectual resources, we increase the therapeutic value of proven drugs and create new products that redefine what medicines are capable of doing. As our product portfolio and pipeline continue to grow, so does our capacity for innovation. We continue to expand our worldwide capabilities, explore new opportunities, and bring fresh perspectives to medicine.
