AstraZeneca is a global, biopharmaceutical company with research and development at its core.
The global health care environment is changing at a rapid pace. Health care is becoming more personalized, treatments are becoming more targeted and economic pressures mean governments and health care systems are demanding increasingly cost-effective solutions to health care problems.
Our ultimate mission is to make a difference through our medicines for patients, their families, our stakeholders, and society in general. We believe that scientific research is the key to achieving this, in collaboration with others who share our interest and our passion. Within the overall AstraZeneca strategy, cutting-edge innovation is at the heart of what we do, and our R&D strategy has been carefully constructed to deliver on our promise to our patients, customers, and shareholders.
