We are taking on infectious diseases with the hope of creating a better world
Our decades of research in infectious diseases have led to profound scientific advances
We’ve been combating global health threats caused by infectious diseases for more than a century. From developing one of the first antibiotics to pioneering research in HIV science, our focus has always been on the prevention and treatment of diseases that threaten people and communities around the world. But our work is far from done.
Every year, millions of people die from infectious diseases. The world is counting on us to bring forward new approaches to help ease human suffering.

Our legacy in innovative HIV science continues
We remember when HIV was one of society's most daunting challenges, when millions of people lost their lives to the devastating AIDS epidemic. Our scientists embarked on an urgent mission to unravel and understand the virus, which led to groundbreaking research in HIV.
We are still driven to do more. We are pushing the boundaries of HIV science because unmet medical need still endures. Eradication of the virus is our ultimate goal.
Continuing research and striving for improvements in the use of antibiotics
While other companies pull away from antibiotic research and development, we stand out from the pack. We continue our efforts, because we know the world needs it.
You have the power to help prevent disease
Life as we once knew it has changed. One thing that hasn’t changed is our focus on our families. By following routine vaccination schedules, you can help protect yourself and your loved ones during these uncertain times.
