Science improves health and wellbeing in so many ways, from the development of everyday convenience healthcare products through to life-saving medicines and vaccines.

With over 11,000 R&D employees worldwide, our primary goal is to develop innovative new medicines and healthcare products that offer significant improvements over existing treatments. At GSK and through our heritage companies, we have a 300-year legacy of applying science to discover and develop new medicines, vaccines, and consumer healthcare products that help to transform lives. We are dedicated to finding new ways to improve the treatment of diseases and illnesses.
