Abbott Bioresearch Center (ABC) is the local Massachusetts site of Abbott Laboratories, one of the world’s leading healthcare companies. Established in 1989, ABC is adjacent to the Worcester Biotechnology Park and the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester, Massachusetts, 35 miles west of Boston. The 450,000 SF facility is located on a 30-acre landscaped site and houses approximately 775 employees, divided between biopharmaceutical production and drug discovery research.
ABC’s production facility is segmented into separate cell culture suites and purification suites, supported by a common production infrastructure.
Together with rigorously developed quality systems (changeover, change control, etc.), this enables ABC to operate as a campaign based facility, with multiple products safely manufactured at the same time in different areas and at different times in the same area. Extensive and validated equipment covering the full range of biopharmaceutical unit operations combine with state-of-the art control systems to enable a broad range of biopharm processes. ABC manufactures both for Abbott and for other companies on a contract manufacturing basis.
In drug discovery research, ABC’s mission is to discover new small molecule and biologic therapies for immunological diseases. We are working toward the discovery of anti-inflammatory compounds that alter signal transduction in immune cells and antibodies that target autoimmune
mechanisms. In collaboration with scientists from Abbott discovery
centers we are also developing novel multi-functional Biologics as optimized therapeutic solutions for the treatment of cancer, pain and neurological disorders, Our research group includes highly trained scientists in the disciplines of molecular and cellular biology, pharmacology, medicinal chemistry and biotechnology.
ABC offers prospective employees a complete benefits package including generous paid vacation; matching 401(k) plan, pension plan, tuition reimbursement, medical, dental and life insurance benefits and health and dependent care reimbursement accounts. We are an equal opportunity employer.
ABC is the perfect place to bring your biopharmaceutical career or product.
