Who We Are

Our Mission

At PPD, we know that patients – people the world over, our family, our neighbors, ourselves – are depending on us for new treatments and cures. From a rich diversity of experience, we are united in purpose. In joining the quest to improve health, we all have our why.


We have a strong will to win.
We are committed to industry leadership and the relentless pursuit of excellence. We are tenacious, resilient and never satisfied with mediocrity. We are passionate, deliberate and driven by our purpose — to improve health.
We earn our customers’ trust.
We take ownership, honor our commitments and hold ourselves accountable. We are service oriented and have a sense of urgency aligned with that of our customers. We anticipate problems, find solutions and deliver results.
We are game changers.
We do this by bending the time and cost curve of drug development through innovation and continuous improvement. We constantly challenge the status quo, seek deeper understanding and implement bold strategies.
We do the right thing.
Our integrity defines who we are. Ethical research and business conduct are the foundation of our business. We never compromise quality or patient safety.
We are one PPD.
We work together to achieve our purpose, mission and strategy. We hire the best, develop ourselves and each other, and recognize the power of being one team.
