AstraZeneca R&D: Turning science into medicine

Introducing AstraZeneca R&D

We are driven by science, united by science, and every day, we push the boundaries of science to deliver life-changing medicines.


What science can do

We are never complacent about scientific discovery and development, always pushing our R&D productivity, searching for new knowledge and the next breakthrough.

Transforming our science

Guided by our ‘Growth Through Innovation’ strategy, we are committed to investing in four areas, which will help us in our aspiration to create the greatest and swiftest impact on disease.

Our people are our power

Our business and scientific culture is diverse, inclusive and collaborative, and we do everything in our power to enable all our people to be the best they can be.

Strategic science centres

We have three strategic R&D centres in the UK, US and Sweden, as well as an active R&D presence in 40 other countries spanning the globe.
