Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Andover location of the Eisai Research Institute has dedicated itself to uncovering ways to treat and cure certain forms of cancer. Located on Corporate Drive, the Andover team of drug researchers worked in 2005 with sea sponges to fight breast cancer.

In 2007, Eisai constructed a new facility next to the one on Corporate Drive to house operations that had once been based in Wilmington, MA. Having the facilities so close together drastically cut down on driving time for a number of employees who had to complete certain tasks at each facility.
