4 Merck’s historyMerck is the world’s oldest pharmaceutical and chemical companymorphine codéine1668Friedrich Jacob Merck: Engel-Apotheke (“Angel Pharmacy”) in Darmstadt1827Plant extracts and other chemicals by Heinrich E. MerckAlkaloïdes:Quelques 150 ans plus tard, Heinrich E. Merck reprend la petite affaire familiale pour la transformer en fabrique de médicaments et de produits de chimie fine. La révolution pharmaceutique est en marche : dès lors, Merck produit à grande échelle des alcaloïdes (morphine, codéine, cocaïne…).A la fin du 19e siècle, George Merck, membre de la famille(Georg Merck, petit-fils de Heinrich Emanuel Merck). , s’installe aux Etats-Unis pour créer, en 1903, Merck & Co. et se lancer à son tour dans la fabrication de ces produitsMais l’entrée en guerre des Etats-Unis le contraint en 1917 à se séparer de la branche allemande et à assurer sa propre croissanceL’année 1925 marquera un véritable tournant. George Merck cède la direction à son fils qui transforme la société de chimie fine en entreprise pharmaceutique. La recherche et le développement s’imposent comme les nouveaux fers de lance d’une industrie en pleine expansion. 1933, le Merck Institute of Therapeutic Research est fondé. Les scientifiques de l’institut associent alors leurs noms aux plus grandes avancées scientifiques et médicale : la mise au point et l’industrialisation de la pénicilline, de la cortisone, de la vitamine B12, de la streptomycine… permettent de soigner des millions de malades.
