Career Page

Cubist Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the research, development, and commercialization of pharmaceutical products that address unmet medical needs in the acute care environment.

Cubist employs more than 570 people — approximately 350 in Massachusetts. The company's total net revenues increased 47% to $433.6 million in 2008 from $294.6 million in 2007.

The company's main product is Cubicin, an antibiotic used to treat skin infections.

In July 2008, Cubist entered into an agreement with AstraZeneca to promote their established antibiotic, MERREM I.V. (meropenem for injection) in the U.S. The Cubist product pipeline includes ecallantide, a recombinant human protein in Phase 2 clinical trials -- CONSERV-1 and CONSERV-2 -- for the reduction of blood loss during on pump cardiac surgery, and two Phase 1 programs that address unmet medical needs, one in CDAD (Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea) and the other in multi-drug resistant (MDR) Gram-negative infections.

In addition, the Company, in collaboration with Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Cambridge, MA), has a pre-IND and a Phase 2 program underway for novel treatments for respiratory syncytial virus infections using Alnylam's RNA-interference technology.

The company was founded in 1992 and went public in 1996.
