Our long history of scientiﬁc leadership includes the discoveries of vitamin B1 and troglitazone, and the ﬁrst isolation of epinephrine – better known as adrenaline. Our research has led to new classes of pharmaceuticals for hypertension, oncology and more, such as the discovery of the statin class of lipid-lowering agents and the development of the ﬁrst glitazone, which revolutionized long-term control of type 2 diabetes.
Today, innovation remains at the center of everything we do. We build on our legacy through ongoing research to create world-class medicines, pairing existing ideas with new ones, as we pursue our highest goal: to improve quality of life for patients around the globe.
We know that our success is linked to the success of our employees. Each member of our organization contributes to our pursuit of our goals and our company vision.

We are proud members of the communities in which we live and work, as individuals and as an organization.
