Passionate about enabling people with severe diseases to live the life they choose

We have a shared ambition to transform the lives of people living with severe diseases. We focus on central nervous system and immunology disorders – putting patients at the center of our world.

The power to make a difference

A global biopharma focused on severe diseases with operations in approximately 40 countries and global revenue of € 4.2 billion in 2016.

We combine biology and chemistry to make major breakthroughs.
  By integrating our expertise in large, antibody-based molecules and small, chemically-derived molecules, we can offer families living with severe diseases and their specialist physicians the advantages of both large and small molecules to produce extraordinary breakthroughs.


We partner with the leaders in the pharmaceutical industry.
 The complexities of severe diseases are beyond the expertise and resources of a single organisation. That is why we team up with partners - we play to our strengths and tap into organisations with greater or complementary strengths.
