Regeneron Named World's #1 Biopharmaceutical Employer in Science Magazine Annual Survey

TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Sept. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: REGN) today announced that Science magazine has ranked Regeneron as the #1 employer in the global biopharmaceutical industry in the journal's annual Top Employers Survey.

"This recognition by Science as the most respected company to work for in the biopharmaceutical industry is very satisfying for all of us at Regeneron," said Leonard S. Schleifer, M.D., Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals and George D. Yancopoulos, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer and President, Regeneron Laboratories.  "Since we opened our first lab in 1989, we have believed that innovative science could be harnessed to deliver important new medicines for serious conditions.  As we have grown from a handful of people to nearly 1,900 employees today, we have worked hard to maintain a culture that values rigorous science, creative thinking, and collegiality.  We are fortunate to have such talented employees who are dedicated to discovering and developing new treatments for patients in need."

This is the first year that Regeneron has captured the #1 position and the first time a New York based company has topped the survey.  Last year Regeneron was ranked #2.

The 2012 survey sought to identify the companies with the best reputations as employers, based on 4,276 survey responses from readers of Science and other survey invitees.  Survey participants came from North America (78%), Europe (14%), and Asia/Pacific Rim (5%); 93% worked in private industry.  Details of the rankings and survey results can be found in the September 21 online edition of Science and will be featured in the October 19, 2012 print issue.

On Monday, September 24, New York State Lt. Governor Robert Duffy and U.S. Congresswoman Nita Lowey and other public officials are scheduled to participate in an event with Regeneron's Tarrytown employees that will recognize this important achievement.

Separately, Regeneron announced another step to reinforce its commitment to science by launching a new Post-Doctoral Training Program that is accepting applications for its 2013 class.  The three-year multi-faceted program will integrate cutting edge science with didactic training, discussion groups, and focused mentoring.
