R&D in Healthcare
A pioneering approach to research and development enables our Healthcare business to discover new treatments and help patients around the world to live a better life.
Vibrant science across the globe
Patients are at the center of all our research and development efforts. We are committed to innovation in science that will ultimately make a meaningful difference in people’s lives all over the world. Ever since Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, was founded 350 years ago, we have gained unmatched experience in the discovery, development and manufacturing of medicines.
On top of leveraging our experience and expertise, we also believe that a healthier future deserves a sizable investment. In 2018 our Healthcare business devoted roughly 20% of total sales to R&D activities aimed at discovering and developing new therapies. All of these are integrated in a global organization with six strategic locations and highly connected hubs: Darmstadt, Boston, Beijing, Tokyo, Bangalore, and Yavne.
