Our therapy areas

We are focused on the delivery of life-changing medicines.

The path to new treatments

The future of treatment for many of today’s diseases lies in uncovering mechanisms that are newly emerging or are still to be discovered. We believe the best way to help patients is to focus on breakthrough science to discover these mechanisms and develop novel, targeted therapies that interact with them.

Our most important therapeutic areas are Oncology; Cardiovascular and Diabetes; Respiratory, Inflammation and Autoimmunity. We are also active in the fields of Gastroenterology; Infection and Vaccines; and Neuroscience.
