We’re uniting science, technology and talent to make a difference in more people’s lives, and revolutionising the way we do R&D.

We’re combining the power of genetic and genomic insights into what causes disease, with the speed and scale of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) to make better predictions about who a treatment might work for, and why. We believe this powerful combination of data and technology holds the key to fundamentally transforming medical discovery for the better, improving R&D success rates and shaping how even the most challenging diseases, like neurological conditions and cancer, can be both prevented and treated.

No single scientist, nor any one technology can keep us all ahead of disease. That’s why we build important collaborations with commercial and academic partners to advance our understanding of disease and what it takes to get ahead. In the past three years, we’ve doubled the number of partnerships we’ve signed, because of our belief in their significant impact on our process.

Our pipeline currently comprises of more than 60 vaccines and medicines across four core therapeutic areas including infectious diseases, HIV, oncology and immunology as well at pursuing other science-led opportunities outside our core areas. Many have the potential to be first or best-in-class opportunities for patients and since 2017, we’ve delivered 13 major approvals and more than doubled the number of potential new vaccines and medicines in Phase 3 and registration to 23.

In 2021 we delivered four major product approvals: Cabenuva for HIV, Jemperli for endometrial cancer, Xevudy for COVID-19 and Apretude, our new long-acting medicine for HIV prevention.

We give our scientists the freedom to own the process. Our scientists often use genetic data to help us understand the root cause of disease. We steer the research where the data shows we can do the most good. If a project doesn’t pan out, we take what we’ve learned and apply it elsewhere.
