ACHILLION PHARMACEUTICALS EXPANDS PRESENCE IN NEW HAVEN, CT
Great news from Achillion Pharmaceuticals, which recently celebrated the expansion of its New Haven Connecticut headquarters. The expansion was prompted by the company’s 20 percent growth in 2015. More growth is expected in the coming year.
“This expansion is the latest milestone in an exciting time for our company,” said Milind Deshpande, President and CEO of Achillion Pharmaceuticals at a gathering of colleagues and guests. “Since last year, we’ve partnered with Janssen Pharmaceuticals to advance our HCV portfolio and create next generation treatments for HCV, and we’ve brought our first factor D inhibitor into the clinic to potentially treat rare immunological diseases. We are proud that these compounds were discovered and developed here at our New Haven headquarters.”
