April 23, 2014

Rx&D, the association of Canada's research-based pharmaceutical companies, is pleased to announce the launch of Rx&D's Canadian Innovation Timeline to mark the centennial anniversary of the organization and our members in Canada.

The Canadian Innovation Timeline was developed in partnership with Let's Talk Science to celebrate and promote the incredible contributions Canadian researchers have made to the discovery and advancement of pharmaceutical and life science research. From the discovery of Insulin in 1921, to the development of Vinblastine for Chemotherapy in 1959 and the first HIV preventative vaccine in clinical trials today, Canadian life scientists, research institutions, government and industry share a proud history of improving human health through innovative medicines and vaccines.
