Making your breakthroughs possible with investments that matter


Moving with urgency takes determination, ingenuity and passion. It also takes innovating where it matters most.

The decision to invest more than $700 million in the past five years in Early Development all started with listening to you. These initiatives have spanned the entire globe with a mission to expand capacity, enhance technology and produce new ways of working to ensure you have the insight, speed and flexibility you need to advance your development programs and pursue answers to life-changing breakthroughs. The Fall 2021 edition of our SparC of Innovation magazine details how these investments create a more capable and adaptable Early Development infrastructure for your studies.
