AstraZeneca is all in on science. We’re resetting expectations of what a bio-pharmaceutical company can be. We work with the urgency of a start-up and the precision of a global leader in medicine. Globally, AstraZeneca’s research investment totaled $5.6bn in 2015. And our North American sales were $10bn in that same year.

MedImmune

MedImmune is AstraZeneca’s worldwide biologics research and development arm. We work as partners on the discovery, development and commercialisation of small molecule and biologic prescription medicines. By prioritizing across the whole organization to increase speed, quality, and cost we’re able to focus on projects that we believe have the best chance of success.
