Drug Discovery addresses key unmet medical needs through the identification and validation of therapeutic targets, generation of leads and optimisation of those leads into drug candidates for clinical evaluation. We focus our discovery and development efforts on a core set of therapeutic areas where we have proven expertise and where we believe we can have an even greater impact on the disease and how it is managed. Core areas of opportunity include liver disease, neuroscience, immunology, oncology, renal disease and women's health.
Collaboration is Key
At AbbVie, you’ll find multiple opportunities for scientific and technical employees to collaborate. For example, at our Bioresearch Center in Worcester, Mass., we have a roundtable process that enables bench scientists to share day-to-day observations in their laboratories with our R&D leadership and suggest avenues for additional exploration. We have also established a global online community that enables AbbVie scientists around the world to exchange ideas and best practices.
Currently, we have state-of-the-art global research facilities in:
- North Chicago, Ill., USA
- Redwood City, Ca., USA
- Worcester, Mass., USA
- Ludwigshafen, Germany
