Our focus areas
Unlocking the power of what science can do
The path to new treatments
The future of treatment for many of today’s diseases lies in uncovering mechanisms that are newly emerging or are still to be discovered. We believe the best way to help patients is to focus on breakthrough science to discover these mechanisms and develop novel, targeted therapies that interact with them. Our focus is on the following: Cardiovascular and Metabolic diseases; Oncology; Respiratory, Inflammation and Autoimmunity; Infection and Neuroscience.
Cardiovascular and Metabolic diseases
AstraZeneca has been driving cardiovascular innovation for more than 100 years. Our enduring goal is to push the boundaries of science to further reduce cardiovascular morbidity and mortality beyond current treatments, and to deliver transformative cardiovascular and metabolic medicines to the people who need them.
We are working to redefine the cancer treatment paradigm by delivering life-changing medicines to help address unmet clinical needs in a host of cancers and one day help eliminate the disease as a cause of death.
An exciting pipeline
Our pipeline forms a robust portfolio of investigational therapies in varied stages of clinical development.
