GSK poaches from Pfizer


GLAXOSMITH­KLINE has poached one of Pfizer’s top vaccine executives after it failed to produce a jab.

Philip Dormitzer will be global head of vaccines research and developmen­t. He was Pfizer’s chief scientific officer for viral vaccines as the US group developed a successful jab with Germany’s Biontech.

The post has been vacant since Emmanuel Hanon left in April. FTSE 100 firm GSK is awaiting results of a clinical trial for a vaccine it developed with Sanofi.

GSK’s Hal Barron said: ‘The importance of vaccines has never been clearer, and the pace of technologi­cal innovation has rarely been greater.’
