Meet the team

We believe great partnerships create great possibilities and are inspired by our partners

As a global biopharmaceutical company, we leverage our agility, R&D capabilities and global footprint to develop valuable business partnerships that fuel tomorrow’s breakthrough discoveries across our three therapeutic areas: Oncology, Rare Disease and Neuroscience. External innovation is at the heart of our strategy. We believe in the expertise of our partners and value the opportunity to collaborate, bringing our skills, experience and global reach to accelerate innovation to bring new medicines to patients.

Exclusively sourcing our pipeline through external innovation, we have no internal competing pipeline as we recognize the best science is delivered in biotech and academic institutions.  We are proud our team comprises talents attracted from Pharma, biotech and academia, to drive shared success through creative collaborations.
