Our Vision: With science, we believe cancer will be cured

“Decades of advances in research, diagnostics and treatments are helping to lower cancer mortality, but millions globally await a cure.


Brave patients and their families – our colleagues, friends and neighbors – are on the front lines fighting cancer every single day. Our work doesn’t stop until there is a cure.


Turning the tide on cancer requires an innovative, integrated approach that fosters partnerships and investment across the entire health and scientific ecosystem. Working alongside our customers, we will continue to provide innovative technology and scientific, clinical and drug manufacturing expertise to help predict, diagnose and treat cancer.


The golden age of biology is upon us, offering so much promise to improve human health. We are hopeful that one day personalized and affordable treatments will be available everywhere for everyone who needs them.”
