Research and Development is at the core of everything we do. It not only drives our work today, but it fosters the work we will do tomorrow, enabling us to develop innovative therapies that will help millions more people. That’s why we’re focused on turning innovative science into value for patients in areas of unmet medical needs where we have expertise and where Astellas believes innovation can help to address some of the most significant unmet medical needs.

Our commitment to R&D is based on the development of medical solutions that address medical needs in our disease areas for research of focus: urology, oncology, immunology, nephrology and neuroscience. We also have increased efforts to explore advancements in new therapeutic areas such as muscle diseases and ophthalmology where unmet medical need presents opportunities for groundbreaking discovery.
