We have a great purpose, which is to help patients who are facing serious diseases and that is why we do what we do every day.

Giovanni Caforio, M.D., Chief Executive Officer

Patients are at the center of all we do

We focus every day on how our work impacts the people we serve. The needs of patients are woven into everything we do from discovering, developing and delivering transformational medicines to addressing barriers to accessing health care.

Changing the Way We Approach Lung Cancer

An estimated 80% of lung cancer deaths are believed to be from smoking, but thousands of non-smokers die of the disease each year.

Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in both men and women in the U.S.

In 1987, it surpassed breast cancer to become the leading cause of cancer deaths in women.

Each year, more than 8 million people die from cancer worldwide, including one in five from lung cancer.
