Redefining Health Care with Digital Innovation

We are excited to be opening our newest IT hub in Austin, Texas.

Austin joins our global family of technology hubs in Prague, Singapore and Branchburg, New Jersey, where we engage with top tech minds from across the company, academia, start-ups and the health care community to develop life-saving health solutions that will drive the core business of our company.

Operating at the intersection of technology, health care, and the life sciences, we support the invention of novel medicines, broaden access to medicine to the people who need it, and enable care through technology. We have always been and always will be inventing, and we do it for the single greatest purpose: Life.




On a daily basis, we partner with our business colleagues to take on the challenge to answer questions like: How can we help doctors enhance their engagement with patients? How can we help our scientists invent more life-saving medicines? How can we help streamline our supply and distribution channels?

To help answer these question, we are coming to Austin to partner and co-develop solutions with the local community.
