A Conversation with Tom Hudson
AbbVie’s Chief Scientific Officer
At AbbVie, our R&D teams are chasing bold goals. The therapies and solutions that no one else has achieved or even attempted. And we want to be there first. That's what we go after every day for our patients.
Science and innovation are the lifeblood of our company. From drug discovery to clinical trials to regulatory approval, we're pursuing new ways to address patients' most challenging health issues.
Since our launch in 2013, we've invested more than $55 billion in R&D. This enables us to discover and deliver innovative medicines and products that solve serious health issues, enhance people's lives today, and address tomorrow's medical challenges.
We focus on core areas where our proven expertise and bold thinking have the greatest potential to solve unmet needs. These areas are oncology, immunology, neuroscience, eye care, medical aesthetics and other specialty areas.
