For decades, Vertex has worked to create transformative medicines for people with serious diseases. We’ve collaborated around whiteboards, in labs and in manufacturing centers. We’ve innovated during hallway conversations and on video conferences across time zones. And, yes, during these past few years, COVID-19 changed a lot of that!
