Medicines

Transforming cutting edge science into meaningful medicines requires global scientific expertise and billions of dollars of investment, but it’s a mission we’re committed to.


AstraZeneca's mission of developing new medicines is a never-ending one. Transforming cutting edge science into meaningful medicines requires global scientific expertise and billions of dollars of investment, but it's a mission we're committed to.

Our expertise in research and development spans the entire life-cycle of a medicine. We have capabilities in both small molecules and biologics. This allows us to search for solutions to unmet medical needs using both modalities, individually or in combination.

Science and patients are at the heart of everything we do, and our skills and resources are concentrated on those therapy areas where believe we can make the most difference.

In Australia, we are working with clinicians at leading institutions across the country on clinical trials, aimed at brining innovative new medicines to the Australian Community. To find out more click here
