As people live longer, chronic conditions are on the rise. New viruses and diseases are emerging, while old enemies like cancer and neurodegenerative diseases remain. Sanofi is driven by the scope of these health challenges.
To unlock tomorrow’s science to develop the latest treatments, Sanofi’s R&D community is:
- investing in multi-targeting therapies to tackle multiple diseases with a single drug;
- working on combination therapies to make treatments more effective;
- developing new biologics to produce precision medicines;
- conducting breakthrough research to unlock the potential of gene therapy;
- leveraging artificial intelligence and innovative digital technologies to empower patients to better manage chronic conditions.
At the end of April 2020, the R&D pipeline contained 87 projects, including 35 new molecular entities in clinical development (or that have been submitted to the regulatory authorities). 39 projects are in phase 3 or have been submitted to the regulatory authorities for approval.
Sanofi is investing in these research areas to find innovative solutions for unmet needs:
We work every day to turn scientific breakthroughs and personal health insights into protective vaccines for people around the world.
