Technology has enabled researchers to communicate and collaborate easily with scientists on the other side of the world. And yet, there is great value in proximity. Researchers who share social spaces and lab benches may also share inspiration that leads to great things.
When Nektar consolidated its U.S. operations, the company realized the power of collaboration – the undeniable force of the best minds working together to achieve higher common goals. Research scientists at the company's state-of-the-art San Francisco research and development center in Mission Bay are now located in the heart of a growing hub of leading biopharmaceutical companies, surrounded by world-renowned scientific research institutes and medical facilities.
Bringing its highly productive research team together in one location will not only increase efficiency, it will enhance critical interactions among research, clinical, and product strategy teams. It will allow the company to solve harder problems, develop better drugs, and get them to market sooner.
