Since 1891, our researchers have helped to find new ways to treat and prevent illness — from the discovery of vitamin B1, to the first measles vaccine, to cold remedies and antacids, to the first statins to treat high cholesterol. Our scientists have also helped develop many products to improve animal health, including vaccines and antibiotics. Today, as a premier research-intensive biopharmaceutical company, we’re focused on making important scientific advancements within hepatitis C, HIV, diabetes and immuno-oncology.
While we are proud of our past, we are enthusiastic about the future. We aim to create a healthier, brighter future for people around the world.
