We’re a company that takes on the toughest health challenges. But we do more than treat diseases—we aim to make a remarkable impact on people’s lives. We are AbbVie, a highly focused research-driven biopharmaceutical company.
People. Passion. Possibilities.®
AbbVie may have been founded in 2013, but our roots run deep. In 2013, we became a separate company from Abbott, though we share a common legacy and strong prospects for future success.
Our name represents our connection to the past and the future. When we became our own company, AbbVie formed a new kind of enterprise—a biopharmaceutical company. We blend the stability, global scale, resources and commercial capabilities of a pharmaceutical company with the focus and culture of a biotech.
Today, our employees around the world focus on delivering transformational medicines and therapies that offer significant patient benefits.
