About Biogen

Biogen logo

Biogen helped create an industry that has touched countless lives. Biogen is among the world’s first biotechnology companies, and today is the oldest independent biotech firm in the world.

From the start, when a group of scientists and venture capitalists were united by a new vision for serving unmet medical needs, the company’s personality has reflected the multifaceted name of the industry Biogen helped co-found: biotechnology. Biology is about life, about understanding the body’s inner workings, about exploring new discoveries and insights to improve lives. Technology is about practical application, about making things work, about developing new products to help people.

Biogen embodies both these worldviews. Scientific curiosity and courageous innovation helps Biogen create new and important therapies; practicality makes Biogen successful and vital to all its patients. These values extend beyond Biogen’s laboratories; Biogen aims to discover better ways of doing things infuses all our work, from manufacturing and marketing to partnerships and human resources. At the same time, the practical application of Biogen’s discoveries is what drives scientists, as the company seeks treatments and therapies that can help patients live longer and better lives.

Biogen is proud of more than 30 years of contributions to the biotechnology industry and looks forward to continuing to shape the future of an industry that transforms scientific discovery into advances in patient care.
