Harnessing the power of data

With the explosion of human data and the rise of new technologies, we're able to discover, develop, and deliver transformative medicines and vaccines faster and more effectively than ever before. In fact, last year alone, we produced more data in just one quarter than in our entire 300-year history. By using this data, our scientists can make better decisions and involve patients in the discovery process earlier. Together, with our R&D Digital and Tech team, we're dedicated to staying ahead of disease and improving the lives of patients everywhere.

Digital and Tech powers everything we do at GSK and is central to our R&D efforts to get ahead of disease. We are building exceptional data and prediction capabilities to execute and deliver at pace for patients.

The Onyx Research Data Platform organisation is a significant GSK investment in data engineering talent and capability, designed to deliver a step-change in our ability to leverage data, knowledge, and prediction to find new medicines.

At GSK, your data skills can go further and help unlock the value to support remarkable discoveries. When our GSK Onyx team delivers tech innovation, our scientists can drive scientific breakthroughs that will change lives all over the world.
