Our passion is improving health.

Our passion to continuously improve health keeps us at the forefront of scientific research and development.

Behind each of our medicines and vaccines is a team of researchers who are leaders in their fields. People whose unwavering enthusiasm for finding new ways to prevent and treat disease is matched only by their unrelenting commitment to scientific excellence and patient safety.

It costs about €625 million and takes up to 10-12 years, to bring one medicine from discovery in a laboratory to the patient. The pharmaceutical industry invests around € 1 billion per year in research and development and carries out about 25 % of the global industrial research and development.

We are entering an exciting period with a strong product pipeline that targets a broad range of diseases. And we are looking forward to the next generation of health care by using new techniques and technologies.
