Following the science to improve patient outcomes
What will make the biggest difference?
Recent developments in the understanding of respiratory disease pathways mean that we are entering an era of unprecedented potential to deliver scientific breakthroughs and transform the lives of people with asthma and COPD. Our 40-year heritage in respiratory science is just the beginning of our story. Hear more from the people at AstraZeneca behind our commitment to respiratory disease.
Whether you’re a bench scientist, whether you’re in commercial, whether you’re in development, it’s taking great ideas, innovative science and translating them into medicines that are going to make a transformational difference to patients. That’s what drives us, and that’s what science can do.
Our pipeline forms a robust portfolio of investigational therapies in varied stages of clinical development.
Phase 3/Reg.* refers to assets that are in Phase 3 or that have been submitted for regulatory approval, and may include assets that are now launched in one or more major markets.
Respiratory (as at 27 April 2017)
I have a passion to develop medicines that help patients who don’t otherwise have options. This is very rewarding and motivating for me, and keeps me focused on seeking the evidence, and collaborating with other investigators who share a similar vision to pursue the science that benefits all of mankind.Roland Kolbeck, PhD, VP, R&D Respiratory, Inflammation and Autoimmunity (RIA)
