About Us Hero Space Image

A belief in the power of teamwork is at the very core of our business strategy.

For all the original research we conduct at Merck, we know that the next great discovery in medicine may come from outside of our laboratories. This is why the formation of strategic partnerships is a central part of our mission to turn breakthrough science into novel medicines that improve patients' lives.

So if you've discovered something significant, perhaps it’s time to learn how we can work together to turn your discovery's potential into reality.
