We are balancing our focus on our industry-leading pipeline with the active life-cycle management of our existing medicines; expanding indications and exploring new novel treatment combinations, to deliver to those patients with the greatest unmet need. Patients are always front of mind in everything we do - from the treatment options we provide and the daily impact these treatments can have.

Global Medical Affairs are central to catalysing changes in the practice of medicine to transform the patient experience.

Everything we do begins with the science and centres around patients but we know we can only make the most significant scientific and cancer care advancements with the most talented team.
