Hear from Mark Cockett, as he discusses the Branford research facility
Leaving no person living with HIV behind
The patient is at the forefront of everything we do, “ViiV is very much focused on patients, focused on every aspect of a patient's life and how we might improve that with the drugs and products that we produce”, says Mark Cockett.
No two patients are the same; while one might be very happy on the drugs they are on, another may struggle to take their medication regularly, or develop a form of resistance, or even suffer side effects. Developing drugs that solve these issues for the person living with HIV is what drives the Branford facility, and every day we get a little closer.
PLHIV are at the forefront of everything we do - We are focused not only on HIV treatment, but also how we can help improve every aspect of someone’s life.
“We’ve got several things in the pipeline that we’re working on for PLHIV. It means that we’re providing more options for people living with HIV, which is what really brings me to work everyday” - Michelle DeGrosky, Clinical Development, ViiV Healthcare.
