“Peter has helped sustain Merck’s commitment to outstanding science and innovation during a period of enormous change for our company and our industry,” said Frazier. “His contributions have positioned us well for future success. Over the past decade, Peter led MRL through an immense transition in pharmaceutical research and development, oversaw important advances in our use of new technologies, began leveraging external innovation and led the creation of an integrated, industry-leading pipeline following our merger with Schering-Plough.”“I am deeply grateful to the incredibly talented and dedicated people of MRL who have worked with me over the past 12 years on our mission of delivering medicines and vaccines to improve human health around the world,” said Kim. “I am very pleased with Roger’s appointment and confident that he is the right person to lead MRL into the future, and am committed to ensuring a seamless leadership transition for this truly special organization and its great people.”
