Rapidly evolving science and relevance for many therapy areas explains why the field of immunology has become a fertile area for the discovery and development of new medicines – if we can pin-point exactly where these changes in our immune system are happening, and how, we could have the starting point to develop a new medicine.
That’s by no means an easy challenge, but our research teams believe immunology has the potential to help in the development of medicines to tackle respiratory diseases, cancer, metabolic, infectious, neurological and inflammatory diseases. We also recognise that because the science is progressing so quickly in this field we won’t discover everything on our own. And so we’re joining forces with world-renowned academic scientists to identify the exciting areas of research that our drug discoverers should be exploring. We’ve invited some of the brightest academic scientists in the world to join us in our laboratories, where they’ll be continuing their own research while gaining access to our world class technologies.
