University Relations at Vertex

“We” Wins is one of our core values here at Vertex. It speaks to our collective desire to share our passion for creating new possibilities in medicine and to inspire our next generation of innovators. Through our strong partnerships with a network of local and national educational institutes, we are always looking for opportunities to connect with students, professors, administrators and alumni. We do so with the goal of helping each to gain a better understanding of what goes into the discovery, development and commercialization of Vertex’s innovative and breakthrough therapies.

At Vertex, we partner with schools and universities to seek out passionate and fearless new talent -- driven individuals who share our core values and vision of redefining health and transforming lives. Through internships, full-time employment, temporary employment and other unique programs, we offer a variety of ways for students to innovate their educational experience, learn from some of the industry’s boldest and brightest individuals, and work on projects that have real impact on our company, our products, our industry and -- most importantly -- our patients.

Vertex University Relations celebrates the unique visible and invisible attributes, experiences, thoughts and characteristics of students, and we promote a culture where all students can feel welcome and valued while having an opportunity to contribute and succeed. We are committed to maintaining a strong presence on campuses and universities. Our employees facilitate seminars, sit on industry panels and network with students to spread their knowledge and insight to the bright young minds of the future. Our Campus Events page hosts a list of upcoming events where you can find Vertex on your campus.
