Our R&D Power Bases

We decided to locate our main R&D centres in world-class scientific hubs to take advantage of the networking opportunities and to progress our external innovation philosophy within established scientific ecosystems. Our three main sites are connected as an ‘innovation grid’, sharing real-time information, allowing us to adapt and focus capabilities to maximize our search and evaluation strategies on a global scale.

Our innovation teams are housed in a high-tech environment and are in close contact with major scientific and academic institutions. Established in 1969, the core mission of this site is to accelerate clinical development, translational and fundamental research to deepen our understanding of molecular, pharmacologic, pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic properties of new molecules in Oncology, Neuroscience and Rare Diseases.
