Breakthrough history

Our commitment to delivering breakthroughs has produced an exciting portfolio of medicines that have the potential to change treatment paradigms and understanding of diseases.

Technology-driven drug discovery

We find inspiration for new drug discoveries in all stages of research, development, and commercialization. Around the world, we focus on 4 different modalities with applications in our therapeutic areas of focus: therapeutic antibodies, new small-molecule drugs, nucleic-acid drugs, and regenerative medicine. In La Jolla, our lab has deep expertise and a proud legacy of discovering therapeutic antibodies for further development. The team is also working to pioneer an Open Innovation model that will help vet the potential of more discoveries.
