That’s how many lives our products touched in 2021.

160+ projects currently in clinical development. 21 major approvals last year alone. These are achievements we’re incredibly proud of, but in this world of digital and technological transformation, we must also ask ourselves this: how can we continue to improve and extend even more people’s lives?
