The Science of Good

We are committed to advancing science for the greater good.

As we tackle some of the world’s most complex health challenges, we do so knowing that diversity and inclusion drive innovation, that we must develop and deliver medicines in an environmentally, economically and socially responsible way, and that the ways we give back — through our charitable giving and employee time and talent — can have a powerful impact on our communities.

Dig Deep.

We believe we can make a difference by delivering on Our Promise to improve the lives of patients and create healthier communities for all.

That’s why we invest our philanthropic resources and employee expertise to foster innovation and advance sustainable solutions to disparities in healthcare and education. Our giving initiatives aim to diversify the scientific and healthcare workforce, advance a more just healthcare system, and build local partnerships to ensure our communities thrive.

Everybody In.

We believe the best work happens when everyone has a voice.

Just as we value diversity of scientific approaches, we work to foster belonging within our own walls, advance inclusive research and health equity in our industry at-large, and transform society through partnerships across healthcare and education, and within all communities. We champion comprehensive, enterprise-wide initiatives to build educational and career pathways in science and medicine and foster a diverse future workforce.
