Our therapy areas
Unlocking the power of what science can do
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 Renal and Metabolism; Respiratory & Immunology, Inflammation and Autoimmunity. We are also active in the fields of Gastroenterology; Infection and Vaccines; and Neuroscience.
Cardiovascular, Renal and Metabolism (CVRM)
We aim to save the lives of people who suffer from cardiovascular disease, heart failure, chronic kidney disease and diabetes, by advancing CVRM solutions and addressing shared risk factors between these distinct but interrelated disease areas.
Respiratory & Immunology
We strive for scientific breakthroughs that change the treatment and life of patients with asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and chronic cough.
Other disease areas
We have medicines and vaccines in other disease areas that have an important impact for patients. As such, we are selectively active in the areas of autoimmunity, infection & vaccines, neuroscience and gastroenterology, where we follow an opportunity-driven approach and often work through partnerships.
