Bringing ideas to medicines in Upper Providence
Located approximately 30 miles northwest of Philadelphia, our Upper Providence (UP) R&D Hub establishes a vital footprint for GSK R&D and serves as a center of scientific excellence in the US market.
Our site here is situated on approximately 281 acres of land. By itself this fact may feel a bit underwhelming but when you consider the location of that 281 acres – we’re pretty fortunate. Our location is close to many of our world-renowned academic and institutional partners and innovation hubs, which allows us to reinforce and build new relationships with key scientists and organizations. (It’s also a stone’s throw from Valley Forge, so the area is steeped in history as well as innovation.)
Our site here houses the full range of R&D activities—from idea through manufacturing of the medicine. Collaboration is the key and is enabled by our SMART working approach. This means our offices are open as are our lab spaces; allowing visibility, communication, and interaction to drive innovation.
Our team here in Upper Providence works collaboratively with our R&D Hub in Stevenage, UK, satellite US offices in Upper Merion, Pennsylvania; Boston, Massachusetts; Research Triangle Park, North Carolina; and San Diego, California, as well as our other global satellites.
