About the biopharma business of Merck

Focusing our expertise to make a difference

At the biopharma business of Merck, we have an enduring commitment and focus in our specialist therapeutic areas of oncology, neurodegenerative diseases, fertility and endocrinology, along with rheumatology as an emerging area of expertise. We also provide a portfolio of cardiometabolic care and general medicine products, especially in emerging markets where patient need remains high.

Around the world, teams of dedicated employees work to discover, develop, manufacture and commercialize our prescription medicines, available in over 150 countries. We are internationally recognized as a biotechnology leader, with innovative and successful products along with a promising development pipeline.

Our expertise in both biotechnology and pharmaceutical chemistry, combined with a profound understanding of disease in our focus therapeutic areas, enables us to take a flexible approach to finding the right compound to treat a specific disease. The capability to develop and manufacture new molecular entities of either type with equal success allows us to exploit the full potential of the biological and chemical spheres at every stage of the drug development process.

We truly believe that our focused expertise can make a real difference to people living with serious diseases. Not everything we do leads to a breakthrough, but we never lose sight of the human need that motivates us.

Commitment & Ambition

Commitment & Ambition

We are committed... growing our business in specialist therapeutic areas where our knowledge and experience can make a real difference for patients.We will achieve this through our own research and development as well through partnerships, which are an integral part of our strategy.

A mid­sized biopharmaceutical company with global reach, we are big enough to make a difference in our focus therapeutic areas, yet agile enough to be able to move quickly and adapt to opportunities in key markets.

As a business of Merck, we combine financial stability and long­term vision with a family-­owned heart and a pioneering spirit.

We do not aim to be the biggest in the industry: our goal is to be the best in our areas of expertise.

Our Ambition

We will be a preferred biopharma partner and trusted name in global healthcare through our enduring commitment to transform patients’ lives with innovative specialty medicines, leading brands and high-value solutions.

Respect is foundation of any partnership

Integrity ensures our credibility
