People. Passion. Possibilities.®

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. 

The pursuit of scientific breakthroughs is more important than ever.

It takes unwavering commitment and confidence to bring solutions from the petri dish to patients. And it requires a continued investment in innovation to address the known and unknown challenges of tomorrow. 

Since our launch in 2013, we have invested ~$50 billion in research to discover, develop and deliver new medicines. We target diseases with significant unmet need where we can improve the standard of care with innovative new therapies. We’re constantly working to create solutions that go beyond treating the illness to have a positive impact on patients’ lives, on societies—and on science itself.

Our history

AbbVie was founded in 2013 when we became a separate company from Abbott. Our name represents a proud connection to that legacy. 

AbbVie formed a new kind of enterprise – a biopharmaceutical company – with the stability, global scale, resources and commercial capabilities of a pharmaceutical company and the focus and culture of a biotech.

Since the beginning, our mission hasn't wavered. Our combination of focused innovation and commercial scale brings differentiated products to market that benefit patients, customers and health care providers. 

Our mission is to discover and deliver innovative medicines and products that solve serious health issues and enhance people’s lives today and address the medical challenges of tomorrow.
