Research and Development

Review of the R&D portfolio

We have just completed a comprehensive and rigorous review of our R&D portfolio, the first critical phase in the transformation of our Research & Development effort. This was an objective exercise, performed by a mix of in-house teams and external consultants. Our project reassessment process looked not only at scientific and medical criteria (in particular, the degree of innovation) but also at commercial, regulatory and market access criteria (such as the extent of patient needs, the expected value of each project, and the commercial risk). This review has enabled us to refocus our portfolio on the most promising projects and to reallocate resources
