At a meeting with the investment community, Pfizer outlined its strategic priorities for the newly formed Oncology organization — and how its deep and diverse pipeline, industry-leading Oncology expertise, and anticipated near- and mid-term catalysts are expected to position the company to deliver strong growth and shareholder value. A replay of the webcast and related materials, including the presentations and a summary and transcript, will be made available on the Pfizer investor relations website at

“With the completion of the Seagen acquisition in 2023, Pfizer has significantly expanded its Oncology organization to amplify its efforts to advance new standards of care and improve outcomes for patients,” said Chris Boshoff, Chief Oncology Officer and Executive Vice President, Pfizer. “With the energy of our highly talented colleagues, the tremendous potential of our pipeline and scientific engine, and scale of the Pfizer enterprise, we believe we are poised to deliver on our vision of accelerating breakthroughs that help people with cancer globally live better and longer lives.”

Boshoff continued, “We have a clear strategy focused on three core scientific modalities and four main types of cancer, where we have the deep expertise and knowledge to advance our leadership. With many significant catalysts expected through the first half of 2025 and beyond, our Oncology organization is well-positioned to be a critical driver of potential long-term sustainable sales and profit growth for Pfizer through the end of the decade.”

During the event, Chris Boshoff and members of the Pfizer Oncology leadership team highlighted the company’s expanded capabilities and portfolio following the completion of the acquisition of Seagen in December 2023. Pfizer Oncology is focused on expanding its leadership in four main cancer types: breast cancer, including three main hormonal subtypes; genitourinary cancer, including prostate and urothelial cancers; hematology-oncology, including multiple myeloma and lymphomas, such as Hodgkin’s disease; and thoracic cancers, which includes lung and head and neck cancers.

Pfizer’s Oncology portfolio is focused on three core scientific modalities: small molecules, antibody drug conjugates (ADCs), and bispecific antibodies, including other immuno-oncology biologics. The company is progressing a next-generation ADC platform aimed at novel targets and improved, differentiated payloads, as well as investigational advanced biologics and novel combinations of medicines.

Through its strategy, by 2030, the company anticipates 8 or more potential blockbusters and expects biologics to contribute approximately 65% of Oncology revenues, compared to approximately 6% in 2023.
