Genzyme has pioneered the development and delivery of transformative therapies for over 30 years. Founded in 1981 in Boston, Massachusetts, Genzyme evolved from a tiny start-up with just a handful of employees to one of the world's leading biotech companies. Acquired by Sanofi in 2011, Genzyme now benefits from the reach and resources of one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, with a shared commitment to improving the lives of patients.

We've kept our roots in the Boston area: our headquarters, Genzyme Center, is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, home to venerable universities, teaching hospitals, and a thriving biotechnology community. But we also operate in every other region of the globe.
