It comes down to this: we are out to conquer disease. That's an amazing, driving aspiration. We're working to make real inroads against conditions that affect the lives of countless people around the world. We've done just that against conditions like heart disease. Now we're seeing strategies take shape that may make a disease like Alzheimer's a manageable one in a decade or two—just in time to help the greatest age wave the world has ever seen. But it's more than Alzheimer's—it's diabetes, it's cancer, it's pain, it's inflammation, it's malaria and infection. That's our passion. And that's what drives our scientists and all the stunning talent we have here. We're applying what we know about science to crack some of the biggest mysteries in the world—and in doing that, change the course of life for the better for billions of people."
