  • She’s working on a starvation diet

    for aggressive brain tumours

    Roche is tackling some of modern medicine’s greatest challenges in its search for medicines to combat serious illnesses for which no effective treatment exists.

    It’s a quest that requires both sophisticated technological capabilities and deep insights into molecular biology.

  • He’s sharpening his weapons

    for battle with advanced breast cancer

    When biotechnology was in its infancy thirty years ago, nobody would have guessed that it would one day give rise to a completely new class of powerful, targeted medicines: monoclonal antibodies (MAbs).

    Today, MAbs are being used successfully not only in the fight against cancer but also to treat rheumatoid arthritis.

  • He’s paving the way

    for a new drug for rheumatoid arthritis

    Searching for a safe and effective new medicine is like looking for a needle in a haystack: only one in many thousands of potential candidates ever completes the journey from idea to pharmacy shelf.

    Because we know that a diversity of approaches produces promising ideas faster, Roche has built a unique innovation network of independent research and development (R&D) centres.

  • Together they’re taking aim

    with an innovative medicine
    for skin cancer

    Roche is not only the world leader in in vitro diagnostics. We also systematically apply our diagnostic expertise to the research and development of new medicines.

    This helps us to develop pharmaceuticals that target the biological mechanisms that give rise to cancer.

  • They’re reading genes

    to help save lives one day

    Precision and speed count in modern molecular diagnostics. We’re working to improve both.

    Our genome sequencers can ‘read’ the building blocks of highly variable genes in a matter of days instead of weeks, which is how long it takes to achieve the same precision with conventional sequencing methods.

    This may one day help to extend and improve the lives of transplant patients.

  • Our People make the difference

    We provide them with the right tools and with the right environment to excel.

    Roche’s approach to innovate is distinct along 4 dimensions:
