We have a long history of making an impact in cardio-metabolic disorders, such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
More than 60 years ago, we introduced our first cardiovascular therapy – and our scientific efforts to deeply understand cardio-metabolic disorders have continued
Cardio-metabolic disorders include cardiovascular diseases and metabolic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes. These represent some of the most serious health challenges of the 21st century.
Advancements in cardio-metabolic research can make an impactful difference for patients, and there is still much more work to be done. We strive for scientific excellence and innovation in all stages of research, from discovery through approval and afterwards.
The impact of cardio-metabolic disorders
We continue to build on our history of innovative therapies in cardiovascular disease to help increase our understanding and help patients around the world.
We work with experts throughout the cardiovascular community to advance research that can help improve the lives of patients with cardiovascular risk.
We are proud of our research team that is committed to helping people with type 2 diabetes.
Programs that can make a difference
Bridging the Gap
To help address the growing challenge of diabetes, our company's Foundation established Bridging the Gap: Reducing Disparities in Diabetes Care. This initiative aims to improve access to high-quality diabetes care and reduce disparities in health outcomes among vulnerable and underserved populations with type 2 diabetes in the U.S.
There are so many aspects of cardio-metabolic disorders
Sharing our stories is a privilege. Let’s keep inspiring each other until these health challenges are in the past.
