Biotechnology: Saving Lives & Transforming Healthcare in the 21st Century
Modern biotechnology is a young industry. But in just a few decades, the entrepreneurs, scientists, researchers and investors working in this field have firmly established themselves at the forefront of medical innovation.
Their work is transforming the way we treat – and now even cure – patients with a wide range of once-devastating diseases. And these visionaries are only getting started. All across the country today, there is work being done in labs that, if successful, will benefit patients and society for generations to come.
The key now is to ensure that these men and women have the tools, the resources and the policy and regulatory environment they need to harness an improved understanding of science and to transform that knowledge into the cures and therapies that patients are counting on.
We have committed ourselves to fostering workplace development, diversity, and inclusion at Alnylam and across the biotechnology industry. We are dedicated to being at the forefront of efforts to develop a diverse and talented global workforce. Read our statement about diversity and inclusion here. We also support the WDDI (Workforce Development, Diversity, and Inclusion) principles adopted by BIO, which you can learn more about here.
