Research and Scientific Discovery

When it comes to research and development, our goal is to discover and deliver innovative medicines that make life better for people around the world. It’s challenging, expensive and often filled with failure. But even when we fail, we advance medical science and understanding by learning more about diseases, biology and chemistry—ultimately bringing new solutions one step closer to reality.

Over the course of our history, we have shed light on some of the toughest health care problems known to man—diabetes, heart disease, infectious diseases, neuroscience disorders, cancer and more.

And our pursuit continues. You can learn more about our scientific efforts in the Discovery section of this site.
