We are focused on areas with the potential to have the most impact and benefit for patients worldwide, developing life-changing treatments for people suffering from devastating conditions. Guided by science and driven to improve patients’ lives, our research and development efforts are concentrated on three core areas: multiple sclerosis (MS), neurodegeneration and rare genetic diseases.
In all of our endeavors, our success will always be measured by the answer to a simple question: Have we truly made a difference in the lives of patients?
