Pfizer meets stiff resistance to AstraZeneca takeover bid
Over the weekend, the news has been relatively flooded with details and opinions of a business deal that will affect British science and research. I’ve continuously been in labs where the scientists are from all over the globe but one thing has remained constant, the research is run and funded by UK firms or the UK government. AstraZeneca is a British pharmaceutical company, one of the largest, and the main competitor to GlaxoSmithKline. It turns out that Pfizer, a US based company famous for bringing us Viagra, is launching an attempted takeover of AstraZeneca.
