Research and Development

Innovation is at the heart of everything we do. The need to find talented scientists, now more than ever, knows no national borders.

We’re proud to have built a truly global network of R&D teams who work together to keep shifting the boundaries of science.

As a result, we have a global research and development (R&D) structure with pharmaceutical centres in Libourne (France), Kansas City (USA), Paulínia (Brazil) and Cavriago (Italy). Our R&D biological centres are located in Kansas City (USA), Cuernavaca (Mexico), Campinas (Brazil), Budapest (Hungary), Tokyo (Japan), Beijing (China) and Buenos Aires (Argentina).

Having a decentralized structure gives each team the freedom it needs to develop its own ideas. Our experts come together regularly to share knowledge – not just with each other, but with the institutes, universities and private research groups who make a significant contribution to our R&D programs.
