Dr. Richard Connell, Head of the Chemistry Sourcing CoE, presented the award plaque to Dr. Ge Li, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of WuXi PharmaTech, at a recent Steering Committee meeting held in Groton, Connecticut. WuXi PharmaTech has enjoyed a close and cooperative relationship with Pfizer for many years, with collaborations ranging from synthetic chemistry, parallel medicinal chemistry (PMC), and ADME to bioanalytical services.

Pfizer's Centers of Emphasis state their mission as "Delivering Value Through Partnership." The success of their partnership with WuXi was certainly reflected in this year's presentation of their Top Chemistry CRO Award.

As the largest pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device contract research organization, WuXi collaborates with Pfizer in a number of drug discovery and development areas. Dr. Gonghua Pan of Pfizer, a key member of the collaboration, commented on the impact, "With WuXi's help, we reduced the average time from submitting the request to shipping of the finished product from 65 days in 2006 to 43 days in 2007, and at no increase in cost. This improvement reflects their own corporate commitment to continuous improvement - a commitment embedded in their slogan, 'we are determined to serve you better(R).'"

"We are very honored to receive this recognition from Pfizer, one of our largest customers for many years, and we really appreciate the trust and support Pfizer has given us.
