Who We Are
Ipsen US is comprised of both Ipsen Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. and Ipsen Bioscience, Inc. At Ipsen, we have a clear mission: to improve patients’ lives. We are a dynamic and growing global biopharmaceutical leader focused on innovation and specialty care, with a focus on 3 core areas: oncology, neuroscience, and rare diseases.
The patients we serve live with serious and rare diseases, and we pride ourselves on putting these patients first. It’s this approach to our daily work that has led Ipsen to make the bold ambition of launching at least 1 new product or meaningful indication each year.
To keep this ambition, we work with a sense of urgency and the agility of a biotech—leveraging our global reach—to bring innovative products to the patients who need them most.
Who We Are
To fuel and accelerate our rapid growth, we have expanded our presence in the leading biotech ecosystem and established our North American headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where we have a global hub and a fully integrated biopharmaceutical team collaborating across US and global commercial operations, Global External Innovation and Partnering, R&D, and manufacturing.
We have strategically expanded our footprint in Cambridge so we can be in the heart of the leading global biotech ecosystem.
