About Us

Since 1878, we have been committed to developing new treatments to improve patients' lives worldwide. We are helping to address global health challenges such as antimicrobial resistance and COVID-19.

Since the 1950s, we have discovered and introduced several novel antibiotics, as well as innovative medications for HIV and influenza. Today, we are developing an investigational oral antiviral for COVID-19 and advancing clinical programs in Fragile X syndrome, acute ischemic stroke as well metabolic disorders and oncology.
Our team is driven to impact patient lives. Our partnerships with industry, government agencies, biotech companies and academia help to advance science with the urgency that today's health challenges demand. Through a combination of in-house discovery and strategic partnerships, we continue to deliver firsts for patients in the U.S. and worldwide.
