Foundation: 1999

Mission: At AstraZeneca, each and every one of us firmly believes that science is at the heart of everything we do. Science can change the way we see the world and how we deal with the diseases that affect us. Science challenges us to push the boundaries of the possible. We trust in the potential of ideas and pursue them, alone and in collaboration with others, until we have transformed the treatment of disease. AstraZeneca is a place where freedom of thought and creativity feed our determination to make a difference through science.

Vision: At AstraZeneca, our goal is to challenge the limits of science to develop life-changing medicines. And we believe that the best way to achieve this is to put science at the heart of everything we do.
