GSK R&D

R&D innovation underpins all of our businesses. We partner with more than 1,500 other companies and academic organisations around the world, enabling us to increase our understanding of new areas of science and to share the risk of development. We have a deep portfolio of innovation focused across six core areas of scientific research and development: HIV and infectious diseases, oncology, immuno-inflammation, vaccines, respiratory and diseases. Since 2013 we saw significant delivery from our late stage pipeline, with six key medicines approved by regulators in the USA alone. We are one of the few healthcare companies researching medicines and vaccines for the World Health Organization's three priority diseases - HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. GSK employs over 12,500 individuals whom work in research to discover new medicines, screening millions of compounds every year.

Our medical affairs physicians and scientists are the experts on our medicines/vaccines and an extremely valuable part of our global business. In all countries where our medicines and vaccines are marketed, these professionals help to ensure that healthcare professionals can understand the appropriate use of our products, and also ensure that the patient remains at the heart of our decision making. Our global medical organization, under the leadership of R&D, Chief Medical Officer Murray Stewart, is at the forefront of the industry-leading changes to improve patient treatment options.
