For 130 years, we have been inventing for life, bringing forward medicines and vaccines for many of the world's most challenging diseases in pursuit of our mission to save and improve lives. We demonstrate our commitment to patients and population health by increasing access to health care through far-reaching policies, programs and partnerships. Today, we continue to be at the forefront of research to prevent and treat diseases that threaten people and animals — including cancer, infectious diseases such as HIV and Ebola, and emerging animal diseases — as we aspire to be the premier research-intensive biopharmaceutical company in the world.
In the UK we employ 1,400 people across four sites:
Our scientists were among the first to develop medicines to treat hypertension, HIV and Hepatitis C. Today we're conducting approximately 100 clinical studies in the UK with over 1,000 patients participating each year.
For more than 10 years, our scientists have been researching different ways to treat Alzheimer’s disease, and we are actively involved in the fight against Ebola.
