As One For Patients

We are united to  help create, improve and prolong lives - as one for patients

At the Healthcare business of Merck, KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, operating in the U.S. and Canada as EMD Serono, we discover, develop, manufacture, and market pharmaceutical and biological prescription drugs to treat cancer, multiple sclerosis, infertility, growth disorders, and certain cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. With our recent launches of Bavencio®, Mavenclad® and Tepmetko® we established our position as a Global Specialty Innovator. Our ambition now is to grow in this role, build scale and maximize our impact for patients. In our core business we build on our strong position as a leader and grow sustainably and profitably to deliver consistent results for the business and serve millions of people around the world.

With our balanced portfolio, we operate across four therapeutic areas: neurology and immunology, oncology, fertility, and cardiovascular metabolism & endocrinology. Our R&D pipeline positions us with a clear focus on strengthening our leadership positions in oncology, neurology, and immunology. We have moved to a patient-directed approach, working with patients and family carers to systematically incorporate their perspectives throughout our processes to shape the way we design and deliver healthcare.
