Merck - 125 Years of Making History
Since 1891, Merck’s researchers have helped to find new ways to treat and prevent illness — from the discovery of vitamin B1, to the first measles vaccine, to cold remedies and antacids, to the first statins to treat high cholesterol. Merck scientists have also helped develop many products to improve animal health, including vaccines and antibiotics. Today, as a premier research-intensive biopharmaceutical company, they’re focused on making important scientific advancements within hepatitis C, HIV, diabetes, and immuno-oncology.
While they are proud of their past, Merck is enthusiastic about the future. They aim to create a healthier, brighter future for people around the world.
