  • Championing Innovation in San Diego: Boehringer Ingelheim Partnering Day – September 21st 2017
    Boehringer Ingelheim knows what it takes to be innovative and entrepreneurial. From the small factory in 1885 to today’s multi-billion-dollar global pharmaceutical organization, we know how important it is to nurture and develop young science and technology businesses. Our track record of bringing breakthrough medicines to patients starts with new ideas and new science. And collaborations with external partners play an essential role in helping us deliver an innovation-led portfolio. We look forward to meeting you at our partnering day so we can learn from each other to develop the next generation of medicines.
