Our employees meet daunting challenges head on in their quest to contribute to the health and well-being of people around the world. Perhaps there is no greater challenge than conquering cancer and that is what Frank Clyburn set out to do when he began leading Merck’s oncology team in 2013.

 The oncology business was truly a start-up. I started with a team that I could count on one hand. We put a cross-divisional leadership team in place and together we managed to bring one of our most innovative products to market.”
