Our therapeutic areas

The road to new treatments

The future of treatment for many of today's diseases depends on the mechanisms we are discovering or yet to discover. We believe that the best way to help patients is to focus on revolutionary science to discover new mechanisms and develop new targeted therapies. The therapeutic areas in which we work are: Cardiovascular, Renal & Metabolic Diseases, Respiratory & Immunology and Oncology.

Cardiovascular, Renal & Metabolic Diseases

We have been leading cardiovascular innovation for more than 100 years. Our goal is to push the boundaries of science to further reduce cardiovascular morbidity and mortality beyond current treatments and deliver transforming cardiovascular and metabolic drugs to people who need them. 


We work to redefine the cancer treatment paradigm by delivering life-changing medicines, to help to solve unmet clinical needs in a number of cancers and so that one day this disease ceases to be a cause of death.
