Department of Manufacturing Sciences at Biogen Idec

Biopharmaceutical manufacturing is a core function at Biogen Idec. With two dedicated biological bulk and secondary manufacturing sites, and new facilities under development in Europe, we are well positioned to meet the clinical and commercial needs of the company.

The Manufacturing Team is responsible for the last leg of a long journey. This journey is difficult and expensive and can take more than 8 years. The process begins in research and development and is transferred into Manufacturing. Our goal is to produce quality material to supply clinical trials. Once a product is approved by regulatory agencies, our job is to generate material to meet worldwide commercial demands. To make this happen each team member’s contributions and commitment are important.


Our mission is to reach manufacturing superiority, while encouraging a dynamic, interactive and positive environment for our employees where they can pursue excellence across all areas of manufacturing.

Our team is committed to exceed all expectations by producing safe and effective treatments that not only improve the standard of living for our patients but also save lives.
