About Biogen Idec

A Biotechnology Pioneer

For more than 35 years, Biogen Idec has been helping to improve the lives of people living with serious medical conditions. Since our founding in 1978, we’ve produced therapies for diseases that affect hundreds of thousands of people around the world.

The company was founded in Zurich, Switzerland by scientists who were the first to clone and express interferon, the monoclonal antibody that led to the development of our first multiple sclerosis (MS) therapy, AVONEX®. A pioneer in the biotechnology industry and one of the first biotech companies, Biogen Idec now has the world’s leading portfolio of MS therapies and in 2014 introduced new treatments for hemophilia A and B, bringing the first innovation to patients in almost two decades. Our mid-to-late stage pipeline has more than a half-dozen programs, each of which—if proven safe and effective—has the potential to significantly change the standard of care in their respective disease areas.

Biogen Idec is a truly global organization, with approximately 7,000 employees worldwide. In addition to our headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts, we have offices in the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan and throughout Europe. We also have a direct commercial presence in 30 countries and distribution agreements in more than 60 additional countries. We are committed to diversity and equality in our workplaces and our community. Over the past several years, Biogen Idec has made significant advancements in supporting a diverse workforce and promoting a more inclusive culture. In 2013, we achieved a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Corporate Equality Index, which also named us one of its Best Places to Work.
