Redwood City R&D Hub

Since our acquisition of Medarex in 2009, our Redwood City R&D hub has grown and is the center of our biologics discovery research.

Our approach is transparent, direct and fully engaged with our leadership in order to quickly execute. Our business development team brings deep science, development and business expertise to quickly align with partners and continue to foster successful relationships through alliance management. We have developed several successful long-term collaborations like our partnerships with Medarex, Adnexus, Ono and Five Prime, which have led to the development of pioneering medicines and new approaches to research and helped us to complement and strengthen our discovery and development programs.

Business development, R&D and commercial teams work closely together on sourcing innovation through partnerships that will combine leading science, technology and research with our development and commercial expertise.
