Pfizer's Chapel Hill site is helping Pfizer to lead the health care industry in the rapidly expanding field of gene therapy. We are working to bring exciting new treatments into the clinic with the promise of changing patients lives.

Pfizer Chapel Hill partners with our process development groups to manufacture early clinical stage cGMP material, producing both drug substance and drug product material. The work environment gains team members exposure to numerous aspects of cGMP manufacturing while working at the clinical manufacturing scale. The small size of the Chapel Hill site necessitates a team focused culture, allowing for empowerment and ownership at all levels.

Gene therapy is a significant growth area within Pfizer's portfolio. Pfizer is committed to the success of Chapel Hill and has recently announced the purchase of a new clinical manufacturing facility. The new facility will more than double our current capacity as we continue to deliver new gene therapy treatments.

The Chapel Hill manufacturing facility is located on the edge of RTP right off Interstate 40. The new facility is located near the Interstate 40 and 540 intersection and is scheduled to open in 2021.

The Manufacturing System Specialist position provides a wide range of support to the manufacturing team. This multifunctional role will partner with both site-based operations and external project teams to ensure the delivery of early clinical stage cGMP material.

Pfizer reports payments and other transfers of value to health care providers as required by federal and state transparency laws and implementing regulations. These laws and regulations require Pfizer to provide government agencies with information such as a health care provider's name, address and the type of payments or other value received, generally for public disclosure. Subject to further legal review and statutory or regulatory clarification, which Pfizer intends to pursue, reimbursement of recruiting expenses for licensed physicians may constitute a reportable transfer of value under the federal transparency law commonly known as the Sunshine Act. Therefore, if you are a licensed physician who incurs recruiting expenses as a result of interviewing with Pfizer that we pay or reimburse, your name, address and the amount of payments made currently will be reported to the government.
