Research

We run to, not from, the world’s biggest health challenges.

The journey to invention and discovery is guided by science – and inspired by patients

Our purpose is to save and improve lives for generations. Our strategy is simple: We follow the science. The path to discovery is often unclear, but we are tireless in seeking solutions for some of the world’s most difficult health challenges.

Our commitment to patients is unwavering

As long as there are still patients in hospitals, doctors and nurses desperate to add years to the lives of their patients, and a world where treatments aren’t accessible to all, we will be here, fighting with all we have to deliver more, sooner.

Invention begins here

Our scientists are applying the latest groundbreaking research technologies and revolutionizing how we discover and develop medicines and vaccines
